Photocatalysts hold significant importance due to their transformative potential across a wide range of fields, from environmental remediation to sustainable energy production. They enable the direct conversion of solar energy into chemical energy by initiating photochemical reactions. This is particularly significant as it offers a sustainable and clean way to harness sunlight for various applications. Understanding the properties of photocatalysts allows researchers to fine-tune their composition, structure, and morphology to maximize their efficiency in converting light energy into chemical energy. Different applications require specific photocatalyst properties. Studying properties such as band gap, energy levels, and charge separation dynamics provides insights into how efficiently these carriers are utilized in catalytic processes.
By studying and manipulating these properties, researchers can design photocatalysts tailored to pollutant degradation, hydrogen generation, CO₂ reduction, and more. This customization leads to higher effectiveness and selectivity. We welcome submissions to this Special Issue, entitled "Synthesis and Properties of Photocatalysts," in the form of original research papers, reviews, or communications that highlight studying the properties of photocatalysts, which is the basis for developing efficient, selective, and sustainable materials with broad applications in energy, environment, chemistry, and beyond.

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. Crystals 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 2600 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.
