Carbon-based modified or unmodified nanostructures are promising materials due to their unique properties of surfaces and are considered to be a high class of materials for a variety of applications of energy and the environment, such as photocatalysis/catalysis, photo-electrochemical, photo-antioxidants, and electrochemical sensors. The synergistic effect involved in these materials displays the properties of inorganic components, such as physical, thermal, and chemical stabilities. Accordingly, there is an imperative requirement for a suitable wastewater treatment technology for the effective decontamination of our water systems. One promising approach is employing metal oxides nanoparticles as photocatalysts for the degradation of these water pollutants. Transition metal oxides and their composites with carbon-based materials exhibit excellent photocatalytic activities, along with favorable characteristics such as non-toxicity or low toxicity and stability that also make them useful in a wide range of applications. Further, the use of carbon- and oxide-based materials has also been explored in the design and fabrication of an effective fuel cell technology and led to the development of sources for renewable energy as well.
We cordially invite you to submit a full manuscript or communications or review article to the upcoming Special Issue on “Carbon Based-Modified/Unmodified Nanostructures for Energy and Environmental Applications”. The issue will comprise original research articles, reviews, and communications.

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. Surfaces is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1400 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.
