Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Photocatalysis is one of the most frequently investigated topic in the field of advanced oxidation processes. Researchers around the world aim at developing semiconductor materials that can be effectively utilized for decomposing potentially harmful compounds in gas, liquid and solid phase. These catalysts can also be suitable for converting the energy of sunlight to chemical energy by generating hydrogen from water-based solutions. This special issue is targeted to gather quality papers about the synthesis and application of photocatalytic materials.

The collected articles will emphasize the surface and structural properties of these micro- and nanoscaled materials and focus on the applicability of the catalysts in UV or visible light irradiation. Studies concerning synthesis methods and reaction mechanisms are also welcome.

I am pleased to invite you to submit manuscripts for this special issue on Photocatalytic Materials in the form of research papers, communications, letters and review articles. We look forward to your participation in this special issue of the journal Materials.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly 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 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs).
