Nanotechnology is a key word for this century to enhance different functions of current technology. Many nanostructured materials have been widely used to develop innovative nanotechnology for different applications. Currently, nanomaterials and nanocomposites have been attracting much attention in the field of environmental monitoring and remediation. Many studies reported that the use of nanomaterials and nanocomposites improved both the efficiency of treatment processes to decompose contaminants and the sensitivity of monitoring tools to detect contaminants. Moreover, people have started to realize the implication of nanomaterials because a huge amount of nanomaterials are used in various applications. Therefore, it is of great importance to understand the trends of new nanomaterials and nanocomposites used for environmental applications as well as their implications.
The aim of this issue is to highlight, and bring to the attention of researchers, the ongoing development in innovative nanomaterials and nanocomposites for different environmental applications along with their implications. It is not limited to water and air purification, soil and groundwater remediation, toxicity of nanomaterials, and the fate and transport of nanomaterials in the environment.

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. Inventions 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 1500 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.
