Water is a scarce resource that has a close and intricate nexus with energy. Water contamination has been reported in almost every region of the world, with significant impact on human health. There are numerous water decontamination methods based of a wide range of techniques with different efficiencies and operational costs. Engineered nanomaterials with magnetic properties allows the contaminants adsorption followed by magnetic separation, while other nanomaterials allow the contaminants photodegradation. Furthermore, the use of innovative materials for the construction of low-cost sensors for the contaminant’s detection, as well as their use for pollutants adsorption or decomposition by photocatalysis is gained interest in the last decades.
This Special Issue focuses on the (i) application of innovative materials in water decontamination, (ii) synthesis and characterization of engineered nanocomposites, (iii) water decontamination by photocatalysis, adsorption and other techniques, (iv) computational and theoretical studies of reaction mechanisms, kinetics and thermodynamics of water depollution processes, (v) metal content of natural waters and effects on living organisms.
We invite authors to contribute with original research, communications or comprehensive review articles covering the most recent progress and new developments in the field of synthesis, characterization and applications of natural or engineered materials in detection and removal from water using natural and engineered materials.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
