Special Issue "Nanomaterial Application in Environmental Monitoring and Water Treatment"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 April 2024 | Viewed by 4130
Improvements in living standards and the rapid development of industrialization have combined to increase the amount of pollutants, including large amounts of emerging pollutants, entering aqueous environments. There are urgent demands for efficient materials and technologies to carry out environmental monitoring and water treatment.
Many scientists have devoted themselves to studying nanomaterials in order to discover environmental applications based on their unique properties, such as their high specific areas, adequate activated sites, and high energy conversion efficiency. Various types of sensing interfaces and devices (fluorescent, Raman, colorimetric, electrochemical, electrical, etc.) have been designed for monitoring pollutants, such as persistent organic pollutants, heavy metal ions and pesticides, in aqueous environments. Additionally, nanomaterials demonstrate a huge potential for water treatment via adsorption and catalytic methods.
This Special Issue welcomes contributions devoted to the design, characterization, and application of novel nanomaterials for environmental monitoring and water treatment, especially and predominately those focused on nanomaterials with high efficiency, low cost, and potential practical applications.

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.
