Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Heterogeneous photocatalysis is an effective way to reduce pollution in both air and water environments, and represents a possible way to face the problems related to the increasing emissions/introduction of hazardous substances. Many advantages are obvious and already reported in the literature in a long list of publications. This Special Issue, focused on the use of TiO2 in this specific field of application, aims to collect an ensemble of papers addressing recent and novel implementations of TiO2-based materials studied to directly use titania under sunlight or commercial LED light, thus overcoming its intrinsic limit linked to its large band gap. The authors will thus find the occasion to share their latest research in all the fields covered by the keywords herein.

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 1800 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.
