Solar Energy Conversion by Nanostructured TiO2

Description

The growing demands for environmental protection and clean energy have spurred rapid development of efficient solar harvesting system for solar energy collection and conversion. TiO2 with proper electronic band structure, high quantum efficiency, and photonic and chemical innerness has been regarded as a versatile oxide semiconductor capable of utilizing sunlight to produce electrical and chemical energy. Its outstanding physicochemical properties have led to an array of advanced photocatalytic and photoelectrochemical applications, such as environmental photocatalysis, dye-sensitized solar cell, and solar fuel productions.

We invite researchers to contribute with original research articles and review articles on the solar energy harvesting and conversion applications of nanostructured TiO2. Studies addressing the synthesis of novel visible-light-responsive TiO2-based photocatalytic nanomaterials, fabrication and characterization of TiO2-based solar cells, and deep insight into the kinetics and mechanism of the TiO2-mediated photosystem are particularly encouraged to be submitted to this special issue. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Kinetics and mechanism of TiO2-mediated environmental photocatalysis
  • TiO2-based dye/semiconductor-sensitized solar cells
  • Photocatalytic solar fuel production (water splitting and CO2 reduction)
  • Photocatalytic organic synthesis over TiO2-mediated system
  • Novel TiO2-based nanomaterials for solar energy conversion

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal’s Author Guidelines which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijp/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/submit/journals/ijp/sec/ according to the following timetable:
