Following the success of the first Special Issue, "Advanced Photocatalysts for Energy Conversion and Environmental Applications”, we are launching a second edition titled “Advanced Photocatalysts for Energy Conversion and Environmental Applications, 2nd Edition” and invite submissions from selected experts in this field.
Photocatalysis is an advanced technique that transforms solar energy into sustainable fuels and oxidizes pollutants via the aid of semiconductor photocatalysts. The main scientific and technological challenges for effective photocatalysis are the stability, robustness, and efficiency of semiconductor photocatalysts. For practical applications, developments in energy conversion (i.e., hydrogen evolution, CO2 reduction, and oriented synthesis) and environmental remediation (i.e., air purification, antibacteria and wastewater treatment) for highly efficient and stable photocatalysts are needed. This Special Issue plans to offer an opportunity for the publication of original research regarding the synthesis of novel photocatalytic materials and their application in energy conversion and environmental remediation.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Photocatalytic performance;
- Photocatalytic semiconductor materials;
- Metal-organic frameworks;
- Mechanisms of photocatalytic process;
- Role of photocatalysts in environment;
- Role of photocatalysts in energy.

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. 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.
