Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The treatment of organic pollutants, especially organic dyes being rather harmful to human beings and causing deleterious damage to the environment, has been considered a vital issue but instead the remaining problem. Among various potential solutions, the oxidative degradation of organic dyes via light activation of photocatalysts is the most efficient and eco-friendly method. In this Special Issue, research aiming at designing, synthesizing and developing sustainable photocatalysts is welcomed. The target materials can also focus on the materials design, such as elaborating the characteristics of light harvesting, charge separation and surface reactions. In addition, the topic also covers the synthesis of photocatalysts via nanofabrication strategy, practical employment for wastewater treatment and other new materials systems with sound sustainability.

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. Nanomaterials 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 2900 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.
