Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Our Special Issue is focused on recent developments in bismuth-based material, a promising class of semiconductor catalyst for energy and environment applications. Bismuth-based photocatalysts have demonstrated superior performance in photochemical and photoelectrochemical applications, such as water splitting, CO2 reduction, C-N coupling, pollutant control, and organic chemical synthesis. The unique electronic and structural properties of bismuth-based materials make them a versatile platform for designing efficient and selective photocatalysts and photoelectrodes.

This Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive overview of recent advances in bismuth-based materials, including their fabrication, characterization, optical and electronic properties, and photochemical and photoelectrochemical applications. We welcome contributions related to topics such as:

  • Bismuth-based materials for photochemical and photoelectrochemical H2 production, H2O2 synthesis, CO2 reduction, C-N coupling, etc.
  • Bismuth-based materials for photochemical and photoelectrochemical organic and inorganic pollutant degradation, including but not limited to PET, VOCs, NOx, H2S, etc.
  • Bismuth-based materials for photochemical and photoelectrochemical organic chemical synthesis and biomass upgrading.
  • Surface modification of bismuth-based materials for enhanced photochemical and photoelectrochemical performance.
  • Bismuth-based composite materials for improved photochemical and photoelectrochemical performance.

We hope this Special Issue will stimulate further research in the field of bismuth-based materials and promote their practical applications in energy and environmental-related areas.

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 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. Materials 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 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.
