Special Issue in Materials: Advancement of Photocatalytic Materials 2016
Semiconductors are exceptional crystalline solids of indisputable catalytic importance. Thousands of papers have been published in this field; moreover, many semiconductors are already applied at an industrial scale. However, there are still many unanswered questions about their crystallinity, morphology, catalytic mechanism, and much more. Is there any plausible connection between the structure of semiconductors and their properties? Which peculiarities can be responsible for selectivity or catalytic activity? Could the catalytic properties be influenced by tailored modification?
This Special Issue is aimed at collecting quality papers about catalytic semiconductor materials. The collected articles will emphasize the surface and structural properties of semiconductor materials and focus on their applicability of any catalytic field. Studies concerning synthesis methods, characterization and reaction mechanisms are also welcome.
I am pleased to invite you to submit manuscripts for this Special Issue on "New Trends in Semiconductor Catalytic Applications" in the form of research papers, communications, letters and review articles. We look forward to your participation in this Special Issue of Materials.
Prof. Dr. Klara Hernadi
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.
