Special Issue "Molecular Sieving and Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2013)
Forming the heart of hundreds of processes as catalysts, adsorbents, ion-exchange and purification agents, crystalline molecular sieves are among the most important and valuable classes of inorganic materials. Utilized in petroleum cracking for gasoline production, for oxygen production from air, for water purification by removing heavy metals and much more, these materials directly impact our lives. While molecular sieves are some of the most widely used adsorbents and purification agents known, recent discoveries may be particularly well suited for evolving energy and environmental applications. New potential in the purification of waste water, natural gas processing and upgrading, and isolation and decontamination of hazardous gases from runaway nuclear reactors are among new, evolving applications. Papers centering on new molecular sieve properties and applications are particularly encouraged.

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. Materials 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.
