Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to contribute to a new Special Issue entitled “Photocatalytic/Photoelectrocatalysis Water Splitting”, which is dedicated to examining recent theoretical and experimental research achievements and applications regarding photocatalytic/photoelectrocatalysis water splitting.

Photocatalysis and photoelectrocatalysis, which both utilize the renewable energy provided by sunlight, exhibit potential regarding the revolutionization of water splitting for the generation of hydrogen oxygen. These technologies offer an optimistic approach to addressing the global energy and environmental crisis.

We invite you to submit your original research articles, reviews, and perspectives regarding photocatalytic and photoelectrocatalytic water splitting. The scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:

  • Novel photocatalysts and photoelectrode materials for efficient water splitting.
  • Study of the reaction mechanisms of photocatalytic and photoelectrocatalytic water splitting.
  • Optimization of the reaction conditions and reactor design.

Computational design and search for efficient photocatalysts and photoelectrocatalysts.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 2700 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.
