The water pollution issue has become a major environmental problem and it results from the industrial development in various fields using clean water. Industrial activities generate large amounts of polluting wastewater, a major source of this pollution is due to the misuse of organic compounds and heavy metals, part of which (10-15%) ends up in wastewater. Thus, the pollutants contained in these effluents are particularly problematic due to their low biodegradability and their adsorption on the resulting sludge. As a result, they are released into various water bodies, leading to poor water quality, with negative effects on the environment and human health. Recently, there has been a considerable increase in academic and industrial interest in new applications of polymer-based materials or materials modified by polymers as innovative materials for the wastewater treatment. In this context, this Special Issue is open to gather articles (research or review) in the field of application of Polymer Materials in Wastewater Treatment. We are particularly interested in research into new polymer-based materials and their use for the removal of dyes, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and heavy metals from wastewater.

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. Polymers 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 2700 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.
