Much of this Thematic Series is dedicated to the state-of-the-art development of energy conversion and harvesting applications, where topics ranging from artificial photosynthesis, water splitting, carbon dioxide reduction, as well as advanced nanocatalysts (e.g., thermal catalysts, electrocatalysts, photocatalysts and photoelectrocatalysts) are covered. These applications may involve the use of emerging nanomaterials such as dimensionality-dependent nanostructures, functional hybrid nanocomposites and metal-free nanomaterials.

Another imperative focus topic of this Thematic Series, nanoremediation (i.e., environmental remediation using nanomaterials), rounds out the volume by reviewing the latest research on water treatment and mineralization of pollutants using nanomaterials.

Additional articles on this topic will be published here soon.
