Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Environmental pollution is undoubtedly one of the main challenge that society faces today. The enhanced properties and effectiveness of nanomaterials makes them particularly noteworthy with regards to their high potential of helping to detect and remediate pollution from water, air, and land. However, there are remaining challenges, including target-specific capture, cost effectiveness, scale up, facile synthesis, green chemistry, non-toxicity, biodegradability, recyclability, and recovery. In this Special Issue, we invite investigators to contribute original research articles, as well as review articles, that are related to nanomaterials to detect or remediate pollutants. We are particularly interested in topics addressing current challenges in the context of volatile organic compounds, pharmaceutical and personal care, malodorous molecules, heavy metals, haze, smoke, bacteria, and pesticides.

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. Molecules 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 1800 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.
