About the topic
In the last decades, the rapid growth of the world population, the expansion of industrialization and agriculture has led to several emerging global megatrends, increasing the demand for innovative materials able to solve new needs in different fields: health, energy, environmental sustainability, etc. Among the most advanced materials, high-efficiency photocatalysts have emerged for their low-cost, environmentally friendly production methods, high stability, and availability. Owing to their high stability and activity under light irradiation, TiO2-based photocatalysts have an excellent potential for application in different fields, such as photocatalytic degradation of organic pollutants in water and air matrices, dye-sensitized solar cells, water splitting, anti-fogging, optics, and so on. However, TiO2 is highly active under UV light irradiation because of the large energy band gap, but its activity under sunlight is shallow. Consequently, most of the scientific efforts are addressed to develop new modified TiO2-based materials active in the visible range. This Special Issue on “Recent Advances in TiO2 Photocatalysis and Applications” welcomes original research work and reviews on applied, theoretical, and computational studies on all kinds of subjects related to these fields. Subject areas include, but are not limited to:
