Photocatalysis using chalcogenide-based nanomaterials is a green technology that has been widely applied for environment remediation and energy production. Chalcogenide-based nanomaterials are visible-light responsive photocatalysts that have significant advantages including low cost, high efficiency, harmlessness, and stability.

This book deals with the different types of chalcogenide-based photocatalytic reactions. This book will cover the fundamental concepts of photocatalytic reactions, mainly under visible light, involving chalcogenides for a range of energy and environment-related applications.

The book focuses on the nanostructure control, synthesis methods, activity enhancement strategies, environmental applications, and perspectives of chalcogenide-based nanomaterials. It offers guidelines for designing new chalcogenide-based nanoscale photocatalysts, at low cost and high efficiency, for the utilization of solar power in the areas of energy production and environment remediation.
