About This Topic
The photocatalytic process has been widely researched for the removal of organic pollutants and the reduction/oxidation of metals. Current advances are being directed toward larger-scale applications. In this context, new materials, reactor designs, and monitoring methods are being developed. Advance in Photocatalysis is devoted to new synthesis routes and new catalysts (nanocatalysts, green catalysts, magnetic recovery catalysts, immobilized catalysts, structured catalysts, and mixed oxides), application of new reactor designs and large-scale processes. This special issue aims to indicate new developments, particularly to explore possibilities of processes/materials applicable to environmentally friendly industrial systems. Subject areas include, but are not limited to:
Synthesis of new materials;
Photocatalyst organic compounds;
Photocatalyst inorganic compounds;
Employment of new reactors;
Photocatalysis industrial application
Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted through the LIDSEN Submission System. Detailed information on manuscript preparation and submission is available in the Instructions for Authors. All submitted articles will be thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process and will be processed following the Editorial Process and Quality Control policy. Upon acceptance, the article will be immediately published in a regular issue of the journal and will be listed together on the special issue website, with a label that the article belongs to the Special Issue.

Due to its similar characteristics to titanium, niobium has become an attractive alternative in photocatalytic processes. Research indicates that titania has an optimal percentage of phases resulting in a commercial catalyst, P25, that contains more than 70% anatase with a minor amount of rutile and a small amount of amorphous phase. On the [...]
