Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions have dramatically increased since the industrial revolution; they have built up in the atmosphere and are a cause of global warming. Sustainable CO2 capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) techniques are required, and materials and technologies for CO2 capture and conversion are of interest. However, most of the current CO2 capture and conversion technologies are still undergoing commercialization, due to the unacceptable economic and environmental impacts they have. Nanomaterials are being widely investigated for CO2 capture and conversion processes. Nano absorbents, adsorbents and nanomembranes for CO2 capture, nano catalysts for catalytic CO2 conversion, and the chemical fixation of CO2 are some of the broader applications of nanomaterials for CO2 mitigation. This Special Issue welcomes submissions related to nanostructured materials used in CO2 capture and conversion applications.

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. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 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.
