Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Photocatalysis offer an opportunity to produce renewable energy to replace fossil fuels. This Special Issue will provide an interdisciplinary platform for experts to interact and share their findings on a wide range of topics related to photoelectrochemistry and photophysics of semiconductor nanostructures. The central theme covers the recent progress and scientific challenges of integrating light absorbers and catalysts into subsystems, with the goal of achieving water splitting, CO2 reduction, environmental remediation, as well as solar fuel generation. On the other hand, an in-depth comprehension of charge carrier dynamics helps to ascertain the elements determining the carrier use efficiency, which is also crucial for the rational design of ideal photocatalyst systems.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
