This Special Issue of Coatings is focused on the study of different photocatalyst-based
coatings for developing self-cleaning, air-purifying and antibacterial properties. In this case, a
wide variety of photocatalysts (TiO2, Si-TiO2, TiO2−xNy, Ag-TiO2, Mo-TiO2, ZnO, SnO2-Ag,
Nb2O5 and C60 fullerene) were evaluated towards the removal of different molecules.
Similarly, substrates such as glass, silica, sapphire, polycarbonate, aluminium, stainless steel,
concrete and mortar were included in this issue. This information certainly contributes to a better
understanding of the photocatalytic removal of different molecules (e.g., Escherichia coli,
Staphylococcus aureus, resazuring, rhodamine B, methylene blue, Demeton-S, 2-chloroethyl
phenyl sulfide (CEPS) and NOx (NO and NO2)) and the coating technologies required for
such performances. Based on these interesting results, I encourage you to read through this
Special Issue and use the valuable information provided therein to help us move forward in
the exciting area of photocatalytic coatings for developing air-purifying, self-cleaning, and
antimicrobial properties.
