Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As we all know, air pollution is currently a huge problem. The air we breathe can contain amounts of harmful gases and particulates that can lead to health problems in humans and animals and also damage the environment. Some of these pollutants are caused by natural processes, but most are due to human activities. Both outdoor and indoor air quality are of great concern.

Major air pollutants include carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, volatile organic compounds, greenhouse gases, stratospheric ozone depleters, soot, among others.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials intends to highlight progress made so far on advanced nanomaterials for pollutants reduction and abatement. We welcome papers dealing with the following topics, but without being limited to these: catalytic and photochemical reduction of pollutants, electrochemical selective reduction of pollutant gases, also with materials and processes, as well as ideas for reduction of pollutant emissions in transportation and industry.

We hope to provide inspiration to scientists to continue facing these challenges and make further advances in this field.

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. Nanomaterials 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 1500 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.

The article deals with the preparation and possibilities of using combined filtration sorption systems usable for the construction of folded filters or respirators. The studied materials are made of several structural layers—a filter membrane made of polymeric nanofibers, an adsorbent containing active carbon or porous silicon dioxide nanofibers, and a supporting or cover nonwoven bicomponent fabric. The layers are connected only by pressure at an elevated temperature without the use of binders, according to utility model PUV 31 375. The result is a compact fabric material of textile character with a high permeability, good mechanical resistance, which effectively catches the submicron particles and the gases of the organic substances. The prepared samples of the filter sorptive material have been evaluated not only from the point of view of morphology and microstructure, but also from the point of view of the capture of pollutants.
