Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
In recent years, photocatalytic processes have shown great potential as a low-cost, environmental friendly and sustainable treatment technology to align with the "zero" waste scheme in the water/wastewater industry. This advanced oxidation technology has been widely demonstrated to remove persistent organic compounds and microorganisms in water. At present, the main technical barriers that block its commercialization remain on the post-recovery of the catalyst particles after water treatment.
This Special Issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944) on "Advanced Photocatalytic Materials for Water Treatment” will deliver a scientific and technical overview and useful information to scientists and engineers who work in this field. It aims to focus on the recent progress in development, of engineered photocatalysts, photocatalytic membrane reactor optimizations, and modellings of the photooxidation processes for water treatment. Submitted manuscripts may cover all aspects, ranging from investigations into material characterization to both photo-mineralization and photo-disinfection kinetics and their modellings associated with the photocatalytic water treatment process.
We invite all colleagues to submit manuscripts (full papers, reviews or notes) in open access to this Special Issue. We encourage you to disseminate this invitation to any colleagues who may be interested.

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.
