Special Issue "Advanced Photocatalytic Material: Synthesis, Characterization and Application"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 February 2024 | Viewed by 3109
With the gradual increase in energy demand in modern society, fossil energy is being consumed at an increasing rate year-by-year. Carbon dioxide emissions from energy consumption are threatening ecological civilization. Various environmental pollutants are increasingly destroying human living space. Energy transformation is an important measure that must be implemented to achieve global carbon neutrality. Photocatalytic technology is ideal for clean energy production and environmental pollution control. The development of photocatalytic materials is one of the important frontier research aspects in this field. Since Fujishima published his paper in 1972, titanium dioxide has become synonymous with photocatalysis and star material. Over the past 50 years, various photocatalytic materials have emerged, which have laid a foundation for basic scientific research and practical applications.
This Special Issue focuses on photocatalytic materials, including but not limited to the development of new photocatalytic materials, the study of the structure–activity relationships of materials, the implementation of in situ monitoring using advanced characterization technology in the preparation process, and the expansion of the application fields of these materials. At present, photocatalytic technology is not only being applied to energy and the environment, but also to the field of biomedicine. We warmly welcome colleagues worldwide who are committed to the field of photocatalysis to publish papers in this Special Issue and exchange their latest research results with colleagues.

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. 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.
