Environmental pollution has attracted ever-increasing concerns from researchers following the rapid development of the industry and society. During recent decades, several advanced materials and techniques have been developed to address environmental challenges and achieve sustainable development. Meanwhile, understanding environmental interface processes, such as adsorption, catalysis, coordination and oxidation-reduction reactions, are of critical importance for pollution control and environmental remediation. This Special Issue aims to cover studies on fundamental environmental interface chemistry and the synthesis and characterizations of new materials for environmental applications.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews dealing with the treatment of wastewater and solid waste using a variety of functional materials and techniques are welcome. Contributions can be from different research backgrounds, including environmental chemistry, interface science, pollution control, materials science, synthetic chemistry, etc.
Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Environmental interface processes on nanocatalysts and nanoadsorbents;
- Removal of emerging contaminants;
- Environmental applications of functional nanoporous materials, such as metal–organic frameworks and covalent organic frameworks;
- Reuse and recycling of industrial solid waste into varieties of structural and functional materials;
- Purification of water and wastewater.
I am looking forward to receiving your contributions.

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. Sustainability 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 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.
