Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials introduces a variety of topics centered on low-dimensional nanomaterials with high photoelectrochemical properties.

Low-dimensional nanomaterials are systems in which the electronic wavefunction is confined to at least the nanoscale range, below about 100 nm. Therefore, the occurrence of quantum-sized effects significantly alters the electronic properties, and thus the optical properties. Low-dimensional nanomaterials are usually categorized as nanoparticles (0D), nanorods, nanowires and nanoribbons (1D), and atomically thin layer-like materials (2D). However, more complex 3D nanostructures are now emerging.

Low-dimensional nanomaterials with high photoelectrochemical properties have attracted interest due to their unique chemical and electronic structures, which have attracted widespread attention in the fields of optics, photoelectrochemistry, electronics, catalysis, and biology, stimulating the development of related research and promoting many new directions. Despite significant progress in recent decades, further in-depth studies are needed to elucidate the development of low-dimensional nanomaterials with high photoelectrochemical properties for potential applications in various fields, such as clean energy conversion, span absorption, photoemission, scattering, nonlinear optics, ultrafast phenomena, photoconductivity, photoelectrochemical, and laser fields.

This Special Issue, entitled "Low-Dimensional Nanomaterials with High Photoelectrochemical Properties", aims to report on the latest innovative research and developments in this field, covering a wide range of topics including:

  1. Low-dimensional nanomaterials for applications in catalysis;
  2. Low-dimensional nanomaterials for applications in energy conversion;
  3. Low-dimensional nanomaterials for applications in environmental or biological fields;
  4. The novel mechanism of photoelectrochemical processes;
  5. Other photoelectrochemical processes.

We welcome contributions from all interested groups.

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.
