Special Issue "Advanced Porous Nanomaterials for Adsorption"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 April 2024 | Viewed by 2610
Interests: adsorption-driven energy conversion and storage; metal–organic frameworks; molecular simulation; computational screening of nanoporous materials
The adsorption of guest molecules on the solid surface of porous materials is a natural phenomenon that has been utilized in the fields of environmental treatment, energy conversion and biomedical applications. The structural properties of porous materials, including pore size, surface area and surface affinity, play critical roles in determining their performance in water treatment, air purification, chemical separation, toxic substance removal, adsorption desalination, adsorption cooling and biomolecules interactions. In recent decades, the emergence of advanced porous materials with ultrahigh surface area and tunable surface affinity, such as metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), covalent organic frameworks (COFs), novel synthesized zeolites and porous carbon, has enabled a remarkable improvement in adsorption capacity, which favors an enhancement in the efficiency of porous materials in environmental treatment, energy conversion and biomedical applications.
Significant efforts have been devoted to the development of experimental and theoretical approaches to identify top-performing porous materials and their composites for industrial application. In addition, the exploration of the underlying adsorption mechanism of novel nanoporous materials is key to the design and development of high-performing porous materials.
This Special Issue is open to contributions from all aspects of advanced porous materials for adsorption in environment, energy and biomedical applications. Original research papers, reviews, technical reports and perspectives are welcome for submission. Hybrid approaches in the papers, including different experimental and computational approaches, are particularly welcome.
Topics covered in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:
- The computational screening of porous materials for adsorption;
- The design and/or synthesis of novel porous materials or composites;
- The adsorption kinetics of advanced porous materials;
- The modeling and measurement of adsorption desalination/cooling systems;
- The adsorption mechanism of novel porous materials;
- The adsorption performance of porous materials in environment-related areas;
- The application of advanced porous materials in biomedical areas;
- The fundamentals of the adsorption behaviors of biomolecules.
