Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Because of the long implementation of the linear economy, our world is facing two serious challenges involving environmental pollution and the need for clean and renewable energy sources. The scientific and industrial communities, nowadays, are seeking to develop sustainable technologies for environmental remediation and energy production within the circular economy concept. One of these technologies, solar photocatalysis, has been involved in many related research areas. The objective of this SI is to address the recent advances in photocatalytic technology towards environmental remediation and energy production. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Design of innovative and effective photocatalytic materials and reactors for energy and environmental applications;
  • Developing photocatalytic materials to boost the valorisation of biomass into high value products;
  • Novel discussion of lignin conversion by photocatalysis;
  • Advances in H2 generation from biomass and wastewaters;
  • Design of novel solar materials for steam production and water desalination;
  • Combination of photocatalysis with other technologies for enhanced environmental remediation and energy production.

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. Molecules 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 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.
