About This Topic

The nanoparticles, in the size range of 1-100 nm, are seeking interest of researchers of almost every field of science and engineering. The reason behinds this is their enhanced physical and chemical properties in comparison to their bulk counterparts. The nanoparticles themselves can occur as a catalyst or can serve as co-catalyst to accelerate the catalytic reaction. Nowadays, application of nanoparticles in the field of photocatalysis is emerging as a new field of science because of the unique size and shape dependent properties of nanoparticles providing a good space to tune all the possible aspects of photocatalysts which is required to be an efficient photocatalyst. This special issue can bring together the recent novel researches going on in this field.


Advanced oxidation processes; Mechanistic insights of nanoparticles in photocatalysis; Modifications of photocatalysts; Applications of photocatalysts in environment remediation; Nanotechnology and materials science
