Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The discovery and synthesis of a diverse range of nanomaterials has resulted in significant advances in their application in modern water and wastewater treatment technologies. The inclusion of these nanomaterials is increasingly disrupting traditional water and wastewater treatment strategies, resulting in cost effective alternatives with improved performances. In some cases, new approaches have been developed to overcome existing water and wastewater treatment problems, as well as to provide future preventive measures.

This Special Issue aims to highlight the current and future impacts of emerging development and adoption of nano-inclusions and nano-disruptive technologies on improving the efficiency of water and wastewater treatment. Contributions to this Special Issue will cover all aspects of the use of nanomaterials for water and wastewater treatment, including the synthesis, design and utilization of nanomaterials for water purification and the clean-up of contaminated wastewater, groundwater, and surface water.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
