Special Issue in International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health: Feature Paper in Environmental Chemistry and Technology
In a historical moment of rapid environmental changes, critical energy, demographic development, and environmental chemistry, coupled with technological development, must address numerous problems in order to understand the influence of human activities on the transport, transformation, and fate of organic pollutants and inorganic.
Environmental chemistry examines the chemical and biological phenomena that occur in the natural environment. In particular, it studies the interaction of chemical substances (sources, functions, reactions, transport, effects, and destiny) in ecosystems (water, air, soil, and living organisms).
The fields of applications can be very extensive, including a) hydrogeochemistry: aqueous models to explain the chemical reactions and transport processes in natural or polluted water; b) atmospheric chemistry: assessments of environmental concentrations of PM, gaseous pollutants, trace elements, and chemical speciation of atmospheric particulates; c) soil chemistry and remediation; d) environmental geochemistry; and e) monitoring air pollution using new technologies.
Environmental chemistry and technology can be extensively used to develop new analytical techniques to determine the presence of pollutants in several environmental spheres (water, soil, and air), providing important support for environmental protection agencies.

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 collection 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. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health 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 2300 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.
