Special Issue "Nano-Structural Photocatalytic Materials: Synthesis, Characterization and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2015).
Interests: Preparation and characterization of novel nano-structured materials, Environmental applications of photocatalysis, Development of analytical methods for environmental and biological samples
Interests: Nano-photocatalytic materials with novel morphology, porous structure, and exposed active sites; Identification of catalytic/reaction mechanisms over nanostructured catalysts; Roles of composition, morphology, and structure of nano-photocatalytic materials; Synthesis and characterization of nano-structural photocatalysts; Photocatalytic water splitting; CO2 reduction and removal of environmental pollutants using nano-structural materials; Theoretical calculation, simulation, and modeling of nanomaterials
The rapid development in materials and catalysis science has led to significant advances in understanding the controlled synthesis and structure-activity relationship of nanomaterials. The design, synthesis, and modification of novel nanomaterials allow for enhanced performances in different applications. We cordially invite investigators to contribute original research and review articles that will stimulate further research activities in this area and improve our understanding of the key scientific and technological issues in the applications of photocatalytic nanomaterials. We are particularly interested in articles describing the new strategies for synthesis, assembly, and modification of advanced nanomaterials with novel morphologies, porous structures, and exposed active sites, which greatly benefit their performance, and new insights on the mechanisms of photocatalysis.

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. Molecules 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.
