Special Issue in Micromachines: Advances in Perovskite-Based Solar Cells
Environmental contamination has grown in recent years as a result of industrialization and the widespread use of chemicals, threatening both human health and aquatic life. Water bodies are immediately impacted by the pollutants that result from numerous industries, such as food coloring, dyeing, printing, and textiles, which contain a variety of untreated chemicals. These pollutants can cause severe disease in humans, including gastrointestinal pain, nausea, headache, ocular injuries, dizziness, and anemia, in addition to harming aquatic and other
organisms. It is therefore essential to remove dangerous chemicals from wastewater before introducing it to the aquatic environment. However, the complex structure makes the removal quite difficult. For this reason, various research groups are looking for sustainable methods to resolve this serious issue. Regarding sustainability, the photocatalytic technique is the appropriate choice. Composite-based photocatalysts are currently being investigated in great detail in a number of disciplines, including the purification of wastewater, water splitting, supercapacitors, H2 production, CO2 reduction, and other applications. Due to their interesting properties, composite materials are receiving more and more attention.
The goal of this Special Issue is to address the current research focusing on “Advances in Composite Photocatalysts”. We welcome researchers to contribute original research papers, reviews, or communications that cover topics including but not limited to the following: the synthesis, fabrication, characterization, reaction mechanism, and photocatalytic applications of composite materials, nanocomposite materials, carbon-based materials, semiconductor composites, and metal–semiconductor composites; wastewater treatment; water splitting; organic pollutants; heterojunction; energy storage etc.

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.
