Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are important precursors of combined atmospheric pollution such as PM2.5 and O3. VOCs can also cause direct or indirect harm to human health. The effective treatment of VOC pollution is the focus of air pollution control. VOC treatment technologies mainly include adsorption and recovery, condensation, membrane separation, catalytic combustion, biodegradation, low-temperature plasma, and photocatalytic degradation. The development of efficient pollution-control materials (e.g., catalysts, adsorption and separation materials) is the focus of study. The separation, purification, recovery, or catalytic conversion of pollutants into valuable chemicals have the potential to effectively improve the development of the circular economy. Catalytic oxidation can promote the complete elimination of VOCs. The purpose of this Special Issue is to report the research trends in materials used for VOC adsorption, separation, catalytic conversion, catalytic degradation, etc. Studies on processes/mechanisms, structure–activity relationships, and by-product generation/inhibition mechanisms would be highly appreciated. It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

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. Processes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 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.
