Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Semiconductor photocatalysis is a potential means of clean energy production and environmental remediation. Perovskite materials have been studied for decades as semiconductor photocatalysts. Recent advancements in materials chemistry have expanded the availability of perovskite materials from traditional metal oxides to non-oxides, which include mixed anion compounds and organic-inorganic hybrids toward efficient utilization of visible light—the main component of the solar spectrum. The performance of perovskite-related photocatalysts can be improved in different ways, for example, through morphological control of the photocatalyst and band-engineering by compositional control. As such, perovskite photocatalysts have attracted considerable attention in many areas including inorganic chemistry, catalysis, materials science, photochemistry, and so on. This Special Issue will collect research and review contributions that focus on recent progress in perovskite-related photocatalysts. We invite you to contribute your research or review articles concerning "perovskite photocatalysts", which we expect will make a great impact on the future direction of many different areas of chemical science.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.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. Inorganics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1400 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.

This review summarizes the current status of the application of metal halide perovskites (MHPs) as photocatalysts in organic syntheses/transformations. It is shown that the optimal and unique electronic properties of MHPs can be advantageously used in several reaction types providing pros with respect to traditional photocatalysts. While still being at infancy, such field of application of MHPs as effective photocatalysts will for sure become a central research topic in the forthcoming years, thanks also to their rich structural and chemical tunability, which may provide tailored materials for most of the envisaged organic reactions.
