Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Benefiting from the rapid development of nanoscience and nanotechnology, numerous novel nanomaterials and strategies are increasingly being proposed in advanced interdisciplinary research in environment fields, especially regarding pollution remediation. Designing and fabricating materials at nanoscale dimensions offer a great opportunity to solve complex environmental problems, as nanoparticles usually possess merits including a large specific surface, high reactivity, tunable shape and abundant active sites. These unique properties can undoubtedly facilitate the multifunctional application of nanomaterials in environmental fields.

Utilizing nanomaterials for the physical and chemical treatments of organic pollutants in water and soil has become a popular topic, especially regarding membrane separation, adsorption, detection and advanced oxidation processes (Fenton-like, photocatalysis, electrocatalysis, etc.). Nanomaterials are highly expected to make great contributions to environmental security and ecological stability due to accurate detection, fast adsorption and the efficient degradation of toxic organics.

Scholars and researchers are highly encouraged to contribute original and review articles on functional nanomaterials for organic pollutant detection and removal in environmental remediation. Topics may include, but are not limited to: the design, synthesis, assembly, modification, functionalization and characterization methods of nanomaterials, with the aim to develop new nanomaterials and technologies for the detection and removal of organic pollutants, providing distinctive views about the future of nanomaterials’ applications.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Dr. Wei Wang

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.
