Photocatalysis enables the direct conversion of solar energy into chemical energy. As such, photocatalysis has been recognised as an effective tool for many sustainability-related applications. For example, photocatalytic reactions can help remove organic and inorganic pollutants from water and air. Photocatalysis is also the key technology in artificial photosynthesis to generate clean fuels in a green manner. Many strategies have been developed to improve photocatalytic efficiency in recent years, including the utilisation of new combinations of anions and cations, doping, facet engineering, and carbon-based materials. Much new knowledge has been acquired about the structure–performance relationship in photocatalysts. However, the development of effective photocatalysts and their applications remain challenging today.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will cover the recent advancements in photocatalytic nanomaterials, including the development of new and improved photocatalysts, advanced applications, and in-depth understanding of reaction mechanisms. This Special Issue will provide a platform for the exchange of new ideas and the latest results in the investigation of photocatalytic nanomaterials and their applications, in order to further advance this research field.

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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
