Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In this special issue of on “Advanced Materials for water splitting“ we are soliciting original theoretical and experimental articles and some critical reviews that utilized new and advanced materials for efficient electrochemical and photoelectrochemical splitting of water and non-noble metal based electrocatalytic materials for efficient splitting of water in solar cell driven all solar monolithic, semi-monolithic or regular electrolyzers . We are also looking for contributions on smart materials that could be used to utilize solar energy not only for water splitting but also for environmental remediation by carbon dioxide capture and its solar conversion to useful liquid fuel like methanol and ethanol. Some examples could be the use of nitrogen, carbon, sulfur or mixed doped stable UV and visible light active porous, non-porous, nano-tubular and nano-wired semiconductor materials and UV-visible light active nanoparticulate highly stable ternary composite materials that could be used for efficient photochemical water splitting reaction.
