Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Crystalline porous materials such as zeolites, metal organic frameworks (MOFs) and covalent organic frameworks (COFs) exhibit outstanding properties that make them greatly appealing in a wide range of applications including gas and energy storage, catalysis, sensing and purification among others.

In the current context of globalization, increase in industrial activity and climate change, the development of efficient systems for the detection and removal of contaminants in water, atmosphere and soil has become an imperative necessity. Crystalline porous materials are ideal candidates for this purpose due to their high specific surface area, pore size modulation and versatile chemical functionalization.

This Special Issue is aimed to highlight novel applications of crystalline porous materials in the sensing and/or capture of pollutants arising from human activity and industrial production, such as heavy metals, toxic inorganic anions and persistent organic pollutants, among others. This will also render opportunities to explore new strategies and promote collaborations among researchers in the field.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following: Inorganic Chemistry, Environmental Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, Materials Chemistry.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
