Environmental pollution poses a threat to human beings and ecological systems, and the purification of toxic organic and inorganic pollutants is essential for a safe society and clean environment. Nanoscale materials often exhibit very different physical or chemical properties compared to their bulk-size materials. In particular, the large surface area and high surface-free energy of nanomaterials often result in a high density of active sites per unit mass, resulting in improved surface reactivity. Because of their abundance of active sites along with their thermal and mechanical stability, nanomaterials have been extensively studied in environmental remediation to purify water pollutants such as heavy metals, toxic organic dyes, oily waste, and various industrial and agricultural waste. This Special Issue aims to cover recent progress in the preparation, characterization, and application of advanced nanomaterials for the elimination of contaminants or pollutants from environmental media such as water (groundwater, seawater, wastewater, etc.), soil, and air. It is our pleasure to invite you to submit original research papers, short communications, and reviews within the scope of this Special Issue.
The following areas of particular interest for this Special Issue.
- Adsorbents or catalysts based on nanostructured materials in the degradation/removal of pollutants such as toxic organic materials, heavy metal ions, microparticles, microplastics, etc.
- Development of nanostructures applicable for oil/water separation, oily wastewater treatment, crude oil adsorption, etc.
- Wastewater treatment and desalination.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
