Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanostructured materials have been widely applied in various fields. Recently, nanomaterials have been widely applied in emerging pollutant removal and environmental remediation due to a particular focus on environmental protection. This Special Issue of Nanomaterials is devoted to the design, synthesis, and applications of nanomaterials towards this aim.

This topic provides timely and authoritative information on the nanomaterials being applied in adsorption and oxidation process for emerging pollutant removal and environmental remediation. The overall scope includes fundamental and practical aspects of adsorption and oxidation processes: mathematics, thermodynamics, chemistry, and physics, as well as processes, applications, model engineering, and equipment design. Specifically, it includes the following areas:

  1. Gas-, liquid-, and solid-phase interface process in Emerging Pollutant Removal and Environmental Remediation;
  2. Catalytic Oxidation or reduction reactions in the presence of nanocatalysts;
  3. Adsorption for removing the emerging pollutants and heavy metals by nano-adsorbents;
  4. Biological and biochemical processes in the presence of nanomaterials in Environmental Remediation;
  5. Theorgy calculation for the removal of emerging pollutants and heavy metals by nanomaterials.

As nanotechnology continues to develop, the synthesis, characterization, and application of nanomaterials have attracted significant interest from researchers. The exploration of new and advanced technologies used to synthesize and characterize nanomaterials are particularly encouraged in this issue.

Nanomaterials (ISSN 2076-4991) is an international and interdisciplinary scholarly open access journal. It publishes reviews, regular research papers, communications, and short notes that are relevant to any field of study related to nanomaterials. Thus, theoretical and experimental articles will be accepted, along with articles that deal with the synthesis and use of nanomaterials. Articles that synthesize information from multiple fields, and which place discoveries within a broader context, are preferred. There is no restriction on the length of the papers; our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical research in as much detail as possible. Full experimental and/or methodical details must be presented for research articles, and computed data or files may also be provided as supplementary materials. Nanomaterials is committed to a high scientific standard; all manuscripts undergo a rigorous reviewing process and decisions are based on the recommendations of independent reviewers.

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.
