This special Issue of Catalysis Today is devoted to “The Role of Oxides in Catalysis: Structure, Selectivity and Stability” and associated with a Symposium devoted to the subject during the 246th ACS National Meeting, which took place in Indianapolis, IN, in 2013. Oxides have come to play a crucial role in Catalysis and there are numerous research efforts to understand the role of the structure, chemical selectivity and stability of these materials under catalytic conditions. Progress has been made in experimental and theoretical investigations and in the development of a new generation of tools to gain insights into complex interactions that can help tailor optimum components and conditions for catalytic performance. The symposium at the ACS National Meeting brought forth the latest scientific developments related to these materials and reactions. The symposium program included plenary lectures, invited keynote lectures, and contributed oral presentations. In this special issue, we present a range of papers from the presentations, which reflect the different topics addressed at the symposium. - The characterization of oxide surfaces and the study at the atomic and molecular level of their interaction with molecular adsorbates and metallic nanoclusters (papers 1–3). - The role of oxide catalysts on thermochemical reactions (papers 4–7). - The use of oxide-based catalysts on electrochemical and photocatalytic reactions (papers 8–9). We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the authors and reviewers of the manuscripts, and to the editorial team of Elsevier for their patience and guidance through the entire process.
