Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, with the emergence of a series of ecological and environmental problems, such as the intensification of the global greenhouse effect and the increase in the frequency of extreme weather, there is an urgent need to develop high-quality research results on pollutant adsorption–extraction techniques that are highly efficient and selective for pollutant extraction, and that are consistent with the principles of green chemistry.

The aim of this topic is to accept papers on the extraction and extraction of specific pollutants by chemisorption–extraction, using the chemical, biological and physical compound-related properties of the pollutants in reaction-mediated systems such as aqueous or ionic liquids, gas-phase and solid wastes, etc., and to provide a state-of-the-art forum for research in the field of extraction and adsorption, among other things.

This topic is geared towards a wide range of applications that are easily scaled up, suitable for green chemistry, continuous production and high separation and extraction efficiency, including impact assessment studies, efficient recycling and corresponding remediation strategies, in order to promote the scientific utilisation and effective mitigation of pollutants, to protect the ecological environment and human health, to safeguard the safety of industrial production, and to achieve low-cost operations.

We welcome innovative and cutting-edge articles and hope to build a platform for learning and exchange with you!

Revolutionary technological advances have posed new challenges to humans, and modern technology needs to seek new breakthroughs. Imprinting technology, also known as template technology, is a technology based on the interdisciplinary development of polymer chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering, and materials science. The polymer prepared with imprinting technology, termed as imprinted polymer, has a memory effect on specific ions and can realize the selective recognition and enrichment of target species. Therefore, imprinting technology has great potential for application in water environment remediation and industrial wastewater treatment, especially for the treatment of low-concentration, toxic, and difficult-to-degrade heavy metal-containing wastewater. Herein, an overview of recent advances in imprinting technology in the field of adsorption and separation is presented, focusing on methods for the synthesis of imprinted polymers and their application to the separation and enrichment of metal ions in water. Finally, we propose several key issues that remain to be solved in the near future. Full article
