About the book
The book on " Photocatalysts" is a publication by IntechOpen publisher related to recent progress in Materials Science, especially on Quantum Dot Photocatalysis, Inorganic Photochemistry, Environmental Catalysis, and Photocatalytic Reactions. This book aims to include topics like semiconductor photocatalysis, principle, and kinetics, visible-light-induced photocatalysis, and design of active photocatalysts, Also the book will discuss self-cleaning, and removal of trace contaminants from water, decontamination and disinfection of water by solar photocatalysis and photocatalysis degradation of dyes. In addition, the book will cover some advanced topics like advances in heterogeneous photocatalysis, photoconversion processes, nanoparticle photocatalysts, water splitting, and photodynamic therapy. Moreover, this book will discuss topics like photocatalytic coatings, ceramic membrane, mechanochemical doping, and TiO2 based photocatalysts, anatase/rutile ratio, crystallization degree, the surface area, the porous structure, lattice defects and oxygen vacancy, and graphene nanocomposite photocatalysts. By the end of the book, the following topics shall be well covered: photocatalytic oxidation reactions, photocatalytic reduction, photocatalytic activities, the dual process of oxidation and reduction, LUMO and HOMO energy. This new book aims to be useful for researchers and workers in the petrochemical and drug industry.
