We are pleased to invite you to contribute original research articles and review articles covering the current progress on "Carbon-Based Nanomaterials for Adsorption and Removal of Pollutants". In the recent decades, carbon-based nanomaterials such as graphene, graphene derivatives, carbon nanotubes, carbon dots, carbon nanofibers, etc., have gained increasing interest among the research community due to their unique characteristics suitable to be used as adsorbents for the removal of pollutants. Carbon-based nanomaterials can be used as adsorbents in their present form or can be functionalized with other materials to further enhance their capability and functionality in removing environmental pollutants. Various strategies have been developed to address the challenges in employing carbon-based nanomaterials, such as the hybridization of adsorbents, stabilization of adsorbents in water, recovery and regeneration of spent adsorbents, innovative operational techniques, and techno-economic feasibility of the adsorbents as compared to conventional adsorbents.
This Special Issue aims to present the latest research outlining the progress in the development and application of carbon-based nanomaterial adsorbents for the removal of environmental pollutants. Innovative and novel works on carbon-based adsorbents will be the focus of this Special Issue not only in terms of basic adsorbent characterization but also in demonstrating technology applications for in-field treatment. Research studies that investigate the practical application of carbon-based nanomaterial adsorbents, including upscaled testing, techno-economic feasibility studies, and the regeneration and recovery of adsorbents, are also welcome.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Synthesis and application of novel carbon-based nanomaterial adsorbents;
- Innovative and practical technology applications;
- Integration with other technologies to remove emerging pollutants;
- Techno-economic feasibility study;
- Regeneration and recovery of adsorbent;
- Theory, modeling, and simulation.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
