Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Porous Materials for Sustainable Energy and Catalysis is an international open-access Special Issue of Crystals (ISSN 2073-4352) intending to publish research publications, review articles, and short communications. The main focus of this journal is the design, improvement, and introduction of robust catalysts based on porous frameworks for sustainable Energy and catalysis. Additionally, we aim to make the catalyst's performance in chemical reactions and processes understandable for scientists in the fields of Sustainable Energy and Catalysis. Therefore, we encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical explorations in detail to make it easier for new scientists in energy and catalysis to reproduce either the experimental or theoretical results. The main research areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Electrocatalysis,
  • Photocatalysis,
  • Plasmon-enhanced porous materials,
  • Nanostructured catalysts,
  • Novel porous Catalysts,
  • Kinetics and thermodynamics of catalytic reactions,
  • Surface and active site engineering of the nanostructured materials,
  • Computational catalysis,
  • Computational electro- and photo-catalysis

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. Crystals 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 2100 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.

This review paper focuses on present issues concerning the use of polyaniline–TiO2 heterostructures as potentially efficient photocatalysts. Conducting polymers such as polyaniline (PANI) are used in the preparation of heterojunction systems with metal oxides like titania to overcome their inherent limitations, e.g., their sole absorption of UV light and overly fast recombination of charge carriers. This review discusses preparation methods, the properties of resultant products and mechanistic aspects. An important part of this paper is its presentation of the major challenges and future perspectives of such photocatalytic materials. Full article
