Rationally driving sunlight to carry out chemical reactions, for example, photochemistry and photocatalysis, has appeared as a beautiful episode within the long story of solar-energy utilization by human beings. Before approaching the application scale of solar panel or solar thermal energy, considerate efforts are still required from effective collaborations among academia, industries, and governments. Over past few decades, the photocatalysis frontier has been continuously explored by means of interdisciplinary research. Emerging understanding in the nanoscale is most likely to lead photocatalysis into the future.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims at presenting “dedicated collections”, showcasing the advances emerging in the research frontiers involving any aspect of the nanoscale in photocatalysis. We commit to providing sophisticated yet balanced contributions, focusing on the state-of-the-art in photocatalysis findings from leading research groups. Studies on nanostructured materials, such as photocatalysts, computational research, and insightful mechanisms, are all cordially invited to work synergistically and to bring forth the next generation of photocatalysis, with implications for remediation, solar fuels and sustainability as a whole.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nanomaterials 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 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
