Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

The international congress TechoHeritage 2017 was held in Cadiz, Spain, 21–24 May, 2017, and was an interdisciplinary and international forum for the discussion of all aspects of cultural heritage conservation. A high-quality scientific program, with special emphasis in conservation materials based on nanotechnology and other innovative process, was developed. A Special Issue, with selected papers from TechnoHeritage 2017, will be published in Materials. Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:

  • Products and techniques for cleaning
  • Products and techniques for consolidating
  • Hydrophobic, superhydrophobic and omniphobic products
  • Anticorrosion products and electrochemical process
  • Self-cleaning and anti-graffiti agents
  • Depolluting products
  • Biocides
  • Multipurpose products
