Special Issue "Photocatalytic Reduction of CO2"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2021) | Viewed by 6067
Carbon dioxide and its emissions represent a hot topic in global warming discussions. However, it also represents the most abundant source of carbon which is not utilized. The idea of conversion of carbon dioxide into other useful chemicals such as methanol or methane and their utilization as fuels could help with the world’s emerging energy shortage. Even though photocatalytic reduction of CO2 has been studied for many years, its exact reaction mechanism is not known, and even the reaction itself represents a challenge. This Special Issue collects original research papers, reviews, and commentaries focused on improving the knowledge of photocatalytic reduction of carbon dioxide, including new reactor design, novel photocatalysts, and especially understanding of reaction mechanisms.Dr. Martin Reli
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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Catalysts 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 2200 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.
