Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the latest nanotechnology developments, the application of nanoparticle-based coatings, which give novel properties to different materials, has become very attractive to scientists and industries worldwide. For example, photocatalytic coatings may potentially develop air-purifying, self-cleaning, and antimicrobial properties using light irradiation as the only energy source. The application of these novel functionalities on ceramic, polymeric, metal, and composite (e.g., concrete or mortar) substrates has been significantly increasing in recent years. Furthermore, although several standard test methods for evaluating photocatalytic properties have been recently launched, a significant amount of photocatalytic performances have been reported in existing literature using various in-house tests. This makes comparison a complex task. Moreover, the applicability of different coating technologies developed for photocatalytic coatings on different substrates has been inadequately investigated. Thus, by including all types of substrates and coating technologies, this Special Issue aims to provide better comparisons and assessments of the application potentials of different photocatalytic coating technologies on different substrates for developing air-purifying, self-cleaning, and antimicrobial properties.

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. Coatings is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. 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.
