Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Photocatalytic materials have attracted increasing amounts of attention across the world due to their great potential in solar energy conversion and environmental remediation. Importantly, photocatalysts have spurred enormous interests and substantial advances in the synthesis and characterization of photocatalytic materials; in the revealing and understanding of fundamental photocatalytic mechanisms and kinetics; in optimizing mass transfer, photon transfer, light distribution and utilization; and in the optimization of operational reaction parameters. Advanced photo-reactor design and scale-up toward renewable energy, environmental remediation, and the synthesis of essential organic compounds are also emerging throughout the world. This Special Issue of Molecules aims to publish the research advances involving novel and cutting-edge reports of photocatalysts and their potential applications that satisfy a real and urgent need for the dissemination of research results. This Special Issue also provides a forum for green photocatalytic materials scientists and engineers, physicists, and chemists to rapidly communicate on the most critical topics in the field of photocatalysts. Original research papers, short communications, and review papers with outstanding quality and significant contributions to the current photocatalysis knowledge are encouraged. We strongly believe that these advances would be exciting to a broad range of readers and contribute to increasing the visibility and impact of Molecules.

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.
