Our journal is pleased to publish a Special Issue in honor of Distinguished Professor Akira Fujishima at Tokyo University of Science (TUS). Prof. Fujishima retired from the University of Tokyo in 2003, and then moved to Kanagawa Academy of Science & Technology as Chairman. Later, he joined as President of TUS from 2010 to 2018. Presently, Prof. Fujishima is working as a Director of Photocatalysis International Research Center (PIRC) at TUS, which opened in 2013. This distinguished scientist was the first to report the unusual photo-induced oxidation of water on the surface of titanium dioxide. First, this result, together with his subsequent work, provided the foundation for the photoelectrochemical splitting of water to produce oxygen and hydrogen on semiconducting materials. Through his work, as well as that of many others, a large number of new materials have been developed for photoelectrochemical solar energy conversion.
In honor and recognition of Professor Akira Fujishima’s outstanding career contributions to the fields of photocatalysis, heterogeneous catalysis, and catalytic reaction engineering, this Special Issue of Catalysts welcomes the submission of original research manuscripts or reviews in these areas. We plan to receive submissions from now to 15th December 2020. Manuscripts will be published online on an ongoing basis after being processed.

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. 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 2000 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.
