About the topic:

Photocatalysis has emerged as a highly efficient method to remove the pollutants and other harmful chemical components in waste water by the redox reactions, which has showed significant meanings for wastewater treatment. The photocatalysis is cross-disciplinary in nature, which involves to materials science, physics, chemistry, engineering and etc. “Photocatalysis for waste water treatment” is involved to the synthesis and discovery of photo catalysts by different new approaches, the modification of known photo catalysts, the exploration and explanation of photocatalysis mechanism, advances of photo catalysts for wastewater treatment. This special issue can provide the channels to exchange and share the novel ideas and recent researches for the researchers dedicated to photocatalysis for wastewater treatment. Subject areas include, but are not limited to:

Catalysis mechanism
Wastewater treatment
Synthesis of photo catalysts
Materials chemistry
Materials science
Surface reaction
Environmental protection.
