Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Photocatalytic nanomaterials of various types have been developed and used. Since titanium was first used for industrial applications, different organic and inorganic materials have been investigated to generate more robust and efficient photocatalytic materials. Carbonaceous nanomaterials, including carbon nanotubes and graphene oxides, have received special attention mainly due to their superb electrical and physicochemical properties. Their effect of broadening the existing band gaps when they are used with photocatalytic metals further encourages their use. In this Special Issue, I would like to invite you to share what progress has been made in this field and how technical challenges can be overcome in order to continue making great progress in sustainable ways.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
