Reaction Kinetics, Mechanisms, and Catalysis is an international journal which publishes original contributions in fields such as the kinetics of homogeneous reactions in gas, liquid, and solid phases; homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis; adsorption in heterogeneous catalysis; transport processes related to reaction kinetics and catalysis; preparation and study of catalysts; reactors and apparatus.

Reaction Kinetics, Mechanisms and Catalysis was formerly published under the title Reaction Kinetics and Catalysis Letters.

  • Is a world-wide platform for researchers working in the fields of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, kinetics, and mechanism research
  • Publishes detailed accounts of original experimental and theoretical work
  • Reviews on current advances in the fields covered by the journal are also considered after previous consultation with the editorial office
  • Presents research on the kinetics of homogeneous reactions in gas, liquid, and solid phases; homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis; and more

    New Content Item

    The 2nd International Conference on Reaction Kinetics, Mechanisms and Catalysis will take place from 3-6 June 2020 in Budapest, Hungary.

    Researchers from all over the world are invited to attend the meeting, present their most recent research and take part in the discussions. The main topics in 2020 will cover sustainable and green chemistry, energy-related challenges, nanoparticles, combustion, reaction mechanisms, photocatalysis, and a special mini-symposium is planned on the theory and practice of stochastic and deterministic reaction kinetics.

    Early bird registration closes on 15 January 2020, so be sure not to miss out!
