Special Issue "Advanced Applications of Layered Double Hydroxides"
A special issue of ChemEngineering (ISSN 2305-7084).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2019).
Interests: layered double hydroxides; heterogeneous oxide catalysts; soil water remediation; controlled release of drugs; adsorption of organics and of inorganics on layered materials; mixed oxide precursors for ceramics
Layered double hydroxides have received outstanding attention from scientists and technologists in the last few decades because of their easy preparation, low price and versatile applications. These extend to a broad range, including heterogeneous catalysts, catalyst precursors, catalyst supports, anion scavenging, water remediation, controlled delivery of drugs and other chemicals, adsorption of organic and inorganic anions, nanocomposites (both as stabilizers or for flame retardant purposes as well), inorganic pigments precursors, as electrodes in electrochemistry, photochemical reactions in the interlayer, as antacids in medicine, stabilization of biomolecules, etc. Updating of these applications will be undoubtedly of interest for all scientists involved in the above-mentioned fields, and new applications, probably unforeseen in the last few years, will probably turn up.
Given your reputed experience in the study of layered double hydroxides and the outstanding impact of your previous publications in this field, we would very much appreciate your contribution in this field in this Special Issue of ChemEngineering. Although it is mainly focused on advanced applications, papers reviewing and updating already known applications, as well as novel synthetic routes, are also welcome.

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. ChemEngineering is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
