Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an original and unique environment for researchers in academia and industry to share and discuss their cutting-edge results on the physical and applied chemistry of novel materials (such as ionic liquids, MOF, perovskites, ferroelectrics materials, nanomaterials, nanocatalysts, nanocomposite membrane, plasma technology, hybrid organic/inorganic sensors, biodegradable polymers, novel technological membranes, aerogels, novel heat transfer fluids, etc.) covering their characterization, modelling, and/or applications.

These novel materials possess unique properties useful for a wide range of applications in fields as diverse as petrochemicals, energy storage, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, hydrometallurgy, environmental remediation and nuclear sciences. In all these fields, such materials can provide novel research strategies and technologies that enable major contributions towards establishing the sustainable processes required for the future of the process industry.

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 papers will be 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. ChemEngineering is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. 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.
