About the book

Perovskite materials are a very important class of materials for various applications in the field of material science. In general, perovskite-structured compounds, (ABO3), including layer-type perovskites, Ruddlesden–Popper phase, Aurivillius oxides, and composites type (SrTiO3/Fe3O4, SrTiO3/Cu2O, Ag3PO4/SrTiO3 and CdS/SrTiO3) systems have been used as photocatalysts in the degradation of organic pollutants and water-splitting. Many of them are titanium-based perovskites owing to their matching bandgap, excellent catalytic activity, high chemical and photostability. The bandgap energies of the titanium-based perovskites range between 2 – 4.5 eV, covering that of the visible light region. Nevertheless, most of these are bulk-type materials, generally associated with low surface area and pore size. Some cation- or anion-doped perovskites have been demonstrated to give reasonable to high-efficiency degradation of dyes under visible light irradiation. Even though, inorganic-organic perovskite materials with varying in halide ions are used in solar cells as active layer with different hole transporting materials and electron transporting layers are fabricated in solar cell devices.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Gordan Tot

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
