Special Issue Information
With the development of technology and the aggravation of resource consumption, it is more and more urgent to separate and recover rare metals from various secondary resources and industrial wastes, such as spent nuclear fuel, various solid and liquid waste during mineral production, electronic and other industrial wastes, etc. As a result, this Special Issue is focused on the development and applications of new materials and technologies with special attention given to the separation and recovery of rare and precious metals from secondary resources.
Articles concerning the separation and recovery of rare and precious metals in any method are welcome. This is an excellent opportunity for chemistry, metallurgy and materials scientists and engineers all over the world to get their latest work published on all aspects of separation material development as well as separation technology development related to rare and precious metals. Therefore, this Special Issue will cover—but is not limited to—the following fundamental and applied research topics:
- Ion exchange;
- New extractant design;
- New adsorbent development;
- New separation method development;
- Seapration and recovery of rare and precious metals.
In keeping with the long-standing tradition of publishing the most recent and highest quality work on Special Issues of our Metals journal, this Special Issue features a collection of manuscripts entitled “Separation and Recovery of Rare and Precious Metals from secondary resources”. This issue features the finest and latest breaking articles on the separation and recovery of rare and precious metals from 2022 and is listed with the main indexing services, making the articles readily searchable and available on the web and citable.
Please ensure your paper is submitted on time, and thank you for your interest in the “Separation and Recovery of Rare and Precious Metals from secondary resources” on Metals.
