Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, nanomaterials have been the subject of research and development, successfully applied in many fields, such as catalysis, medicine, electronics and biology. Some of the properties of nanomaterials are due to the huge increase in surface area when going from a powder material to a nanoparticle material. The increase in surface area leads to an increase in the effectiveness of the reactions that can occur on them. In particular, the application of nanomaterials in wastewater treatment has attracted wide attention. Due to their small size, and therefore large specific surface areas, nanomaterials have strong adsorption and reactivity capabilities. Furthermore, the mobility of nanomaterials in solution is extremely high. The advent of nanomaterials offers numerous opportunities for the removal of heavy metals, microorganisms and organic pollutants from wastewater. Nanomaterials will influence the development of many industrial sectors and research areas in the future.

This Special Issue invites submissions of original research contributions and reviews regarding recent advances in the development, production and characterization of nanomaterials, as well as their use in new fields of application.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Environments 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 1800 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.
