The 15th Korea–Japan Symposium on Catalysis was organized under the supervision of the Division of Catalysis and Reaction Engineering in the Korean Institute of Chemical Engineers (KIChE). This bilateral symposium has been a very successful occasion to deliver information on the recent researches and to have cooperative relationships between scientists and engineers in Korea and Japan. In the symposium, more than 250 papers were presented covering all aspects of catalytic research works from fundamentals and characterizations to various applications extending to green and sustainable technology.

After the peer reviewing process, 26 papers presented in the 15th Korea–Japan Symposium on Catalysis were finally accepted for publication in the special issue of Research on Chemical Intermediates.
