For the separation and/or removal of pollutants in water or air, various approaches have been developed and utilized such as thermal oxidation, photocatalytic conversion, absorption, and adsorption. Amongst such available options, sorption has been widely acknowledged as the most economic, practical, flexible, and efficient methodology. For sorption treatment, numerous materials have been introduced as sorbent materials. Many research efforts have been put to develop diverse novel and/or functional materials including carbon nanotubes, graphene materials, metal organic frameworks, and so on. Although the considerably enhanced performance of those materials is well demonstrated, the use of conventional sorbents (e.g., activated carbon) is still preferred in many circumstances due to their high feasibility in terms of price. In this SI, authors are invited to describe various aspects of sorption-related issues with respect to material chemistry/engineering, environmental/energy fields, and many other fields that employ sorbent materials.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
