Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Issue on polymers and their composites for oil-water separation is devoted to the dissemination of high-quality original research articles or comprehensive reviews on cutting-edge developments in this field. It mainly publishes the research and application achievements of various oil-water separation materials, especially the application achievements of polymers and their composites in water treatment, the chemical industry, electricity, electronics, coal, medicine, food, textile, metallurgy, railway, environmental protection, military and other fields. At the same time, for the oil spill treatment, development of water resources, process water treatment, ultrapure water preparation, wastewater treatment and water recycling to provide effective new materials and technologies.

Thus, any polymers and their composites for oil-water separation. Both original contributions and comprehensive reviews are welcome.
