Nanostructured Materials for Visible-Light-Photocatalysis describes the various methods of synthesizing different classes of nanostructured materials that are used as photocatalysts for the degradation of organic hazardous dyes under visible light irradiation. The first two chapters include a general introduction, basic principles and mechanisms of nanomaterials for visible-light-photocatalysis. Recent advances in carbon, transition metal oxide, and chalcogenides-based nanostructured materials for visible light photocatalysis are discussed in Chapters 3 to 5. Chapters VI and VII describe the role of sulphides, carbides, nitrides, and rare earth-based nanostructured-based materials over visible-light-photocatalysis. The above chapters also explain the characteristics, synthesis, and fabrication of photocatalysts. The role of doping, composites, defects, different facets, and morphology of nanostructured materials for efficient dye removal under visible-light irradiation, are explained in Chapters VIII to XII. Large-scale production of nanostructured materials, used for industrial scales and their problems, including solutions, are discussed in Chapters XIII and XIV. In the conclusion of the book, the challenges in present photocatalytic research, research gaps, and the future scope of nanostructured materials over environmental hazard remediation under visible-light, as well as solar light harvesting are addressed.

This book presents a valuable reference to researchers that enables them to learn more about designing advanced nanostructured materials for waste water treatment and visible-light irradiation.
