Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The research on the application of different  physcochemcial processes based on the in situ production of reactive oxygen species has been showing impressive growth in recent years The objective of this issue is to present recent advances in the field of environmental applications of advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) Therefore, this issue will cover research on the application of different advanced oxidation processes, including but not limited to photocatalysis, photo-Fenton, activated persulfate , UV/H2O2, sonochemistry, ozonation and electrochemical oxidatiom as well as hybrid processes for (a) industrial wastewater treatment, (b) removal of micro-pollutants and emerging contaminants from water and wastewater, (c) air purification systems, (d) water disinfection (with particular emphasis on the fate of antibiotic resistance genres), and (e) energy (hydrogen production or CO2 reduction) (f) Process modelling , hybrid processes and scaling up (pilot plant studies), Research on the synthesis and applications of smart catalytic materials for environmental applications is especially encouraged while we also welcome critical reviews

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. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health 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 1600 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.
