Foreword As environmental issues emerge into the forefront of global public consciousness, the search for new remediation technologies using advanced oxidation processes has grown more intense. The field of environmental photochemistry and photocatalysis as a remediation tool has witnessed a tremendous growth in the past decade.

Abstract

As environmental issues emerge into the forefront of global public consciousness, the search for new remediation technologies using advanced oxidation processes has grown more intense. The field of environmental photochemistry and photocatalysis as a remediation tool has witnessed a tremendous growth in the past decade. While the commercial application of this technology has lagged behind, research in this area continues unabated. In this special issue we have attempted to give you an idea of the range of research in this area. The articles span the spectrum of research from removal of NOx in air to herbicides such as triazine in ground water and mechanistic models of photocatalytic degradation. I wish to thank the many researchers who have contributed to this special issue, both as authors and referees. I also wich to thank Ms. Shirley Kobza for secretarial help in putting this issue together. It is my hope that this special issue will provide readers with some idea of the current state of research in the area of photocatalysis. K. Vinodgopal Indiana University Northwest Gary, Indiana
