Special Issue "Solar Chemicals Production and Environmental Remediation with Semiconductor/Carbon Photocatalysts"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2019).
Interests: photocatalysis; carbon materials; hybrid materials; solar irradiation; solar/chemical fuels
Interests: photochemistry; photoelectrochemistry; nanoporous carbons; adsorption; carbon/ligth interactions; energy conversion; advanced oxidation processes
One of the main challenges of a global energy strategy is the development of new sustainable fuels and chemicals based on renewable energies. Solar fuels and chemicals are promising strategic pathways since they are produced from simple and abundant molecules using a renewable energy source such as sunlight. However, although the scientific and technological achievements reached to date have been many, the efficiency is still low and far for the practical application. Thus, highly active photocatalysts are required to produce solar and chemical fuels.
The purpose of this Special Issue, entitled “Solar Chemicals Production and Environmental Remediation with Semiconductor/Carbon Photocatalysts” is to cover significant recent advances in the area of solar chemicals, also referred to as solar-driven chemical reactions, using advanced oxidation/reduction processes through the development of efficient semiconductor/carbon-based photocatalysts. Works related with the eco-friendly synthesis routes of innovative carbon-based photocatalysts for the production of energy vectors like H2 or other fuels, CO2 reduction, photo-assisted valorization of organic molecules, and the environmental remediation of polluted water and air are welcome to be submitted to this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.cnfortiles.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 papers will be 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. Molecules 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 2000 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.
