Special Issues
Special Issue on 2020 Roadmap for Photocatalytic Materials towards the Renewable Energy and Environmental Remediation
Submission Date: 2020-11-30

Guest Editors Prof. Dr. Jeffrey C.-S. Wu (National Taiwan University, Taiwan), Dr. Van-Huy Nguyen (Lac Hong University, Vietnam), Dr. Chao-Wei Huang (National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology, Taiwan) and Dr. Dai-Viet N. Vo (Nguyen Tat Thanh University, Vietnam) Scope of the Special Issue To date, the field of photocatalysis has been expanded rapidly and investigated widely. Significant progress and considerable efforts have been devoted to exploring nanomaterials photocatalysts in recent years, opening a new avenue for the potential and alluring photocatalytic applications towards renewable energy, environmental remediation, and essential organic compounds synthesis, etc. This Special Issue (VSI) aims to showcase the recent advances in the research frontiers involving novel and advanced photocatalytic materials science and their promising implementations. The Guest Editors cordially invite the short communications (letters) and featured letters with outstanding quality and significant contribution to the novel photocatalytic materials for submission to this VSI of the Materials Letters. The scope of this VSI covers, but is not limited to, the following topics: Advanced and cutting-edge synthesis approaches for photocatalysts (including inorganic materials, hybrid materials, and macromolecules). In-depth photocatalytic mechanism, reaction pathways, and kinetics insights through advanced methods and theoretical methods that are of significant and direct interest and impact in the science and application of photocatalysts and photocatalytic processes. Studies that relate chemical reactions at surfaces, the reactivity of metal complexes, or macromolecular structure to photocatalytic function and processes. Investigation regarding emerging photocatalytic industrial applications, especially focus on the fields of renewable energy (including water splitting, photo-reforming, energy conversion, and hydrogen generation, etc.) and environmental remediation (including degradation of organic compounds or pharmaceuticals, wastewater treatment, and air purification, etc.). New photocatalysts and/or photocatalytic processes with significant impact for conversions of current and future interest within environmental protection, energy, and fuels. Studies that report incremental improvement of photocatalytic performance would also be considered in this scope. New and advanced photocatalytic processes involving simultaneous environmental treatment with sustainable energy production and/or essential chemicals formation or production separation. Experimental and theoretical studies of photocatalytic materials and molecules that result in significantly greater performance or understanding of existing photocatalytic processes involving renewable energy and environmental remediation. Studies on recent advances in other emerging photocatalytic applications. The expected deadline for full paper submission is Nov. 30, 2020. If you need any clarification, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are looking forward to receiving your contributions.
