Catch me if you can: Since its early days catalysis science and technology has shaped our society and provided us with the means and goods to enjoy a more prosperous life. Chemocatalytic conversion is a key enabler for the efficient utilization of biomass, an important factor in this new era of sustainability. This Special Issue of ChemSusChem is dedicated to state-of-the-art chemistry within the field, specifically focusing on the joint research efforts in The Netherlands within the public–private research consortium CatchBio.
