Photocatalytic materials can improve the efficiency and sustainability of processes and offer novel ways to address issues across a wide range of fields-from sustainable chemistry and energy production to environmental remediation. Current Developments in Photocatalysis and Photocatalytic Materials provides an overview of the latest advances in this field, offering insight into the chemistry and activity of the latest generation of photocatalytic materials.
After an introduction to photocatalysis and photocatalytic materials, this book goes on to outline a wide selection of photocatalytic materials, not only covering typical metal oxide photocatalysts such as TiO2 but also exploring newly developed organic semiconducting photocatalysts, such as g-C3N4.
Drawing on the experience of an expert team of contributors, Current Developments in Photocatalysis and Photocatalytic Materials highlights the new horizons of photocatalysis, in which photocatalytic materials will come to play an important role in our day-to-day lives.
- Reviews developments in both organic- and inorganic-based materials for use in photocatalysis
- Presents the fundamental chemistry and activity of a broad range of key photocatalytic materials, including both typical and novel materials
- Highlights the role photocatalytic materials can play in sustainable applications
