Inevitably, in the course of production and manufacturing activities, various types of wastes are generated, imposing a potential hazard to the environment. To date, the greatest environmental damage has been associated with wastewater containing toxic organic and inorganic pollutants, rapidly migrating into the environment when generated in large volumes.
The sorption method has been widely used to remove toxic components from waste and natural water. The advantages of inorganic sorbents compared to organic ion exchangers are relatively inexpensive mineral raw materials and the toxic compound-free production technology according to the ‘green chemistry’ principle.
Inorganic sorbents play a peculiar role in liquid radioactive waste processing due to their chemical, thermal and radiation stability, as well as offering the possibility of disposing of the exhausted sorbents in a form suitable for long-term safe storage.
In this Special Issue, we wish to host original research manuscripts and short reviews covering the latest achievements in:
- The synthesis of novel types of inorganic sorbents;
- The study of their physicochemical and sorption characteristics;
- Application of inorganic sorbents for the decontamination and purification of industrial wastewater and polluted natural water from various organic toxic components, heavy metal ions and radioactive elements.

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. Inorganics 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 2700 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.
