Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Light-induced polymerization is an appealing polymerization technique offering a broad variety of applications ranging from microelectronics and UV coatings to additive manufacturing and dentistry. As a crucial point to achieve a high monomer efficiency, photoinitiators/photocatalysts that absorb light should exhibit high molar extinction coefficient, appropriate redox properties and suitable excited state lifetimes in order to react with the different additives. Historically, transition metals and organic compounds were used as photoinitiators/photocatalysts. However, nanomaterials such as quantum dots, carbon dots, and carbon nitride have recently been proposed as new and innovative photoinitiators/photocatalysts of polymerization and are now being actively researched by both the academic and industrial communities. Researchers in these active research fields are cordially invited to submit relevant manuscripts, in the form of original research articles, perspectives and reviews, concerning the development of new photoinitiators/photocatalysts of polymerization for a Special Issue entitled “Advances in Light-Induced Catalytic Polymerization” within the journal Catalysts

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Catalysts 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 2700 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.

Photopolymerization offers a unique opportunity to convert liquid monomers to polymers using light as the activation source. Recently, major efforts have been devoted to developing visible light photo-initiating systems, and the search for new dyes that can be incorporated into photocurable resins and polymerize a resin within a few seconds is still ongoing. With the aim of exploring a maximum of structures to reach this goal, quinoxaline has been identified to be a promising scaffold for the design of UV-centered and visible light photo-initiating systems. In this review, an overview of the different quinoxaline-based dyes will be given. In order to evidence the interest in these structures, comparisons with reference systems will be given.
