This Special Issue of "Photocatalytic Nanocomposite Materials" (PNMs) is devoted to the research into new-generation PNMs, particularly for the processes of solar radiation energy conversion.
Submissions to this Special Issue on “Photocatalytic Nanocomposite Materials” are welcome in the form of original research papers and/or short reviews that reflect the current state of research in the PNM field on the following topics:
- Design of PNMs;
- Instrumental methods for investigations of PNMs;
- Theoretical and experimental studies of the mechanisms of photoprocesses involving PNMs;
- Photoelectrochemistry of PNMs;
- Applications of PNMs;
- Functional coatings based on PNMs;
The focus of this Special Issue will be on the physicochemical principles of creating new materials with purposeful properties for their specific applications. We expect to publish the results of studies that report the true quantities characterizing PNMs instead of “quasi”, “pseudo” and “apparent” characteristics, the true mechanisms strongly supported by experimental and theoretical data instead of believed ones, sophisticated state-of-art experimental methods to explore the new materials, the studies of real photocatalytic processes rather than dye photodegradation, and so on.
The issue will be attractive to researchers whose activities belong to the areas of physical chemistry, materials science, applied and environmental science, focusing on the studies of photocatalytic processes and who are interested in the true development of the science 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 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.
