Special Issue "Recent Progress in Advanced Adsorption Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 April 2023) | Viewed by 8586
Currently, tens of thousands of scientific papers published annually focus on the experimental or theoretical investigation of various adsorption systems for many different application fields, mostly (but not only) interconnected with environmental protection/depollution. Many of these contributions describe low-cost adsorbents based on cheap raw sources (e.g., biomass) or industrial wastes, which are economically very effective, but their adsorption efficiency is usually low (although it can be interesting for large-scale industrial application).
On the contrary, the present Special Issue of Materials will comprise articles discussing the synthesis, characterization, and application testing of adsorbents with very special adsorption properties such as:
- Outstanding adsorption capacity;
- Extremely fast adsorption/desorption process;
- Very easy regeneration/recycling;
- Highly specific adsorption of components in the mixture;
- Adsorption/separation of specific adsorbates (biomolecules, radioactive species, etc.);
- Very good separability (magnetic, monolithic, etc.);
- Controllable multimodal pore size distribution (hierarchical porosity);
- Multifunctionality (e.g., adsorption–photocatalysis).
In addition, manuscripts introducing new or significantly improved approaches for the characterization of adsorbents and their properties are also welcome.Dr. Václav Slovák
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. Materials 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 2600 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.
