Adsorption is the adhesion of gases, vapors, or solutes in solutions to the surface of solid or liquid substances, and can be categorized as physical or chemical based on the nature of the binding force between the adsorbate and the adsorbent. The driving force of physical adsorption is intermolecular force, while that of chemical adsorption is the chemical bonds between the adsorbate and the adsorbent. Physical and chemical adsorption are not isolated, but often occur together.
Adsorption has been widely used in applications such as the removal of heavy metal ions from water, the recovery and extraction of various resources, and the removal of toxic and harmful gases. The key to the application of adsorption technology is the selection and design of adsorption materials; common examples of these include carbon materials, metal–organic frameworks, polymer materials, gels, metals, and nonmetallic compounds. The adsorption behavior of materials can be affected by many factors pertaining to the adsorbate and the chemical properties of the adsorbents. The study of adsorption mechanisms is also crucial to improving adsorption efficiency.
We are pleased to invite authors to contribute original articles or reviews to this Special Issue, which aims to present studies on the microstructural design of adsorption materials, molecular behavior on the surfaces of the materials, and the related adsorption mechanisms.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
