Welcome from the Chair

Welcome to the 3rd International Electronic Conference on Catalysis Sciences (ECCS 2025). It is my great honor and pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all participants joining us from around the globe. This conference serves as a premier platform for catalysis researchers and enthusiasts to share their latest findings, innovative ideas, and practical experiences. We are excited to announce a series of specialized sessions that will highlight cutting-edge research and developments in various areas of catalysis. These sessions include:

A. Catalytic Materials
B. Environmental Catalysis
C. Photocatalysis
D. Electrocatalysis
E. Biocatalysis

Potential Conflicts of Interest

It is the author's responsibility to identify and declare any personal circumstances or interests that may be perceived as inappropriately influencing the representation or interpretation of clinical research. If there is no conflict, please state "The authors declare no conflicts of interest." This should be conveyed in a separate "Conflict of Interest" statement preceding the "Acknowledgments" and "References" sections at the end of the manuscript. Any financial support for the study must be fully disclosed in the "Acknowledgments" section.


MDPI, the publisher of the platform, is an open access publisher. We believe authors should retain the copyright to their scholarly works. Hence, by submitting an abstract to this conference, you retain the copyright to the work, but you grant MDPI the non-exclusive right to publish this abstract online on the platform. This means you can easily submit your full paper (with the abstract) to any scientific journal at a later stage and transfer the copyright to its publisher if required.
