Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Photocatalysis is a term that combines the basic notion of a catalyst that enhances rate without being consumed with the notion that the reaction is induced and/or accelerated by photons. Focused primarily on heterogeneous processes using “semiconductor” photocatalysts, it has evolved in three phases. The first generation (1975–1985) focused primarily on the studies providing understanding of the illuminated semiconductor/solution interface. The second phase featured work on polycrystalline thin films, doping semiconductors for visible light, dye sensitization, and exploration of the scope of photocatalysis. In the third generation period since 2000, photocatalysis research has continued to expand so that in the 2006–2010 period publications on photocatalysts exceeded those aimed at energy conversion, 16,757 to 12,811. This period has seen two fundamental principles, the special properties of the nanoscale and the power of self-organization, converge to provide a new conceptual platform on which to construct photocatalysts. At this time stimulating work is being done on problems associated with each of these phases, often combining emphases. This special issue invites significant contributions of all of these types plus contributions that show the power of homogeneous systems. It is hoped that it can catalyse communication between researchers in the hybrid area of photocatalysis and the larger catalysis community.

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Catalysts is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 300 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
