Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Green chemistry is a rapidly developing science which seeks to establish the fundamental mechanism of balancing pollutant behaviour in the ecosystem. The emergence of nanotechnology and nanomaterials has opened up opportunities for achieving a sustainable environment. The challenges posed by environmental issues necessitate the remediation of sustainable processes. A major development in the area of environmental chemistry for sustainable development is nanotechnology applications. Nanotechnology has the potential to contribute towards sustainable practices for a clean and green economy. Nanotechnology describes the characterization, fabrication and manipulation of structures, devices or materials that have one or more dimensions smaller than 100 nanometers. Their synthesis, properties, applications and devices have contributed immensely to several industries such as textiles, construction, cosmetics, biomedicine and environmental science. These areas consider green nanomaterials to be key materials for a wide range of applications, making them a top priority for achieving the sustainable environment.

The current Special Issue have been proposed to cover a broad perspective on the current scenarios and challenges faced by green materials, the minimization of organic waste and non-organic waste for renewable fuel, and future prospects for sustainable green materials. This Special Issue is proposed to cover the pathways to achieving a green economy, the synthesis of nanomaterials using green techniques, the market potential of nanotechnology, as well as the prospects, challenges, and risks associated with the use of nanotechnology for environmental remediation.

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. Nanomaterials 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 2900 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.
