The development of innovative materials for a more sustainable future society is of primarily importance to design advanced processes for various applications including catalysis, adsorption, water purification, biomedicine, energy production and related fields of relevance. In recent years, scientists have experienced a significant number of advances the area of nanomaterials, and particularly nanoporous materials. These porous entities have been designed and synthesized using a range of different methodologies rendering families of novel materials with multiple applications.
This special issue is devoted to showcase research devoted to the design and development of innovative routes for the preparation of nanoporous materials and their applications in various areas of interest.

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.
