Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Emerging Organic Pollutants (EOPs) are synthetic or naturally occurring chemical compounds that are not monitored in the environment and may cause adverse ecological effects and threaten human health and life. In light of their potential adverse effects, it is necessary to urgently undertake research that will expand knowledge about the behavior of these compounds in the environment and their toxicity. EOP compounds are durable and difficult to biodegrade; therefore, conventional wastewater treatment technologies cannot completely remove them. Additionally, under the influence of oxidizing factors, degradation products are formed, which may be highly toxic, mobile, and persistent in the aquatic environment, hence harming fauna and flora, and they have the potential to transfer along the human food chain.

This Special Issue on “Environmental Fate, Ecological Impact and Treatment of Emerging Organic Pollutants (EOPs)” seeks high-quality works focusing on expanding knowledge about the presence of EOPs in the environment and their impact on ecosystem components. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Impact of EOPs and their transformation products on the environment;
  • Determination of EOPs in environmental matrices;
  • Research on the treatment of sewage and waste streams from EOPs;
  • Determination of toxicity of EOPs and their transformation products.

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.
