Special Issue in Materials: Recent Advance in Photocatalysts Materials
Diamond has attracted a great deal of research interest since the first artificial synthesis of diamond using chemical vapor deposition, or high-pressure high-temperature methods. Its unique chemical and mechanical properties, and tunable surface structures, have been observed to improve the possibility for applications within, e.g., renewable energy, biotechnology, and electronics. As the nanotechnology synthesis methodology has developed quite fast during the past few years, nano-diamonds have been successfully synthesized. Today, nanodiamond can display an even greater interest within material science and has therefore caused extensive research interest (e.g., in the field of fluorescent nanodiamond powders for biomedical imaging). Therefore, novel developments of nanodiamonds, for various applications, will be addressed in this Special Issue. With immense pleasure, we invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are welcome.

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.
