Photocatalysis using nanostructured semiconductors is a potential strategy to solve environmental pollution problems. Photocatalysis and engineering applications have been mainly directed toward organic pollutant removal, NOx degradation, renewable energy production, and waste-to-energy conversion. Therefore, the aim of this thematic issue is to collect publications showing recent advancements in photocatalytic materials science and related promising applications in environmental remediation, pollutant removal, and renewable energy.

The scope of this thematic issue covers, but is not limited to the following topics:

  • Novel synthesis approaches for photocatalysts, including inorganic materials, hybrid materials, and macromolecules
  • Experimental and theoretical studies (including computational nanotechnology studies via first-principles calculations) of materials that result in significantly greater performance or in the understanding of existing photocatalytic processes involving organic pollutant removal, NOx degradation, and renewable energy production
  • Emerging photocatalytic industrial applications, including degradation of organic contaminants (e.g., pharmaceuticals and antibiotics) and air purification
