Scholarcy highlights

  • Clean and accessible water for all has been defined by the United Nations as a major goal to promote sustainability in a planet with improved life quality
  • We review mechanisms and applications of carbon-based nanostructures for heterogeneous photocatalysis applied to water purification
  • The photocatalytic efficiency of hybrid nanocomposite materials is attributed to improved light harvesting and reduced recombination of photo-generated charge carriers
