This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Optical Properties of Semiconducting Nanostructures for Photocatalytic Applications: Fundamental Understanding and Material Design introduces different optical phenomena in semiconducting nanostructures that can impact their performance in photocatalytic applications. It discusses how to design photocatalyst materials with the highest efficiency to remove pollutants and improve the water splitting process. First the book reviews the fundamental mechanisms of the photocatalytic process by semiconducting materials. Then it delves into the impact of optical properties on the performance of semiconducting materials for photocatalytic applications. Materials such as semiconductor/g-C3N4 nanocomposites, semiconductor/graphene nanocomposites, inorganic/organic nanocomposites, metal/semiconductor nanocomposites and wide bandgap metal-chalcogenide nanostructures are covered. Optical Properties of Semiconducting Nanostructures for Photocatalytic Applications: Fundamental Understanding and Material Design is suitable for those working in the disciplines of materials science, chemistry, and physics. A volume in the Woodhead Optical and Electronic Materials series where it joins an active cluster of titles on semiconductor and optical materials topics Complements the materials chemistry, energy materials, and nanomaterials book portfolios Provides fundamental understanding of optical properties as well as design strategies for designing better materials for this important energy application
