Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The journal Inorganics welcomes the submissions for the Special Issue titled “Advances in Sonication and Microwave Processing on Inorganics”. This Special Issue will focus on the publication of original manuscripts devoted to the most recent advancements in the processing of inorganic materials by means of both ultrasound as well as microwave technology, together with those deriving by the combination of the two techniques.

Microwaves and ultrasounds in inorganic chemistry and materials sciences research fields are typically investigated and reported for the synthesis of specific inorganic materials. Indeed, they allow obtaining several advantages and simplifications in the synthetic protocols, as well as peculiar characteristics in the as synthesized products, contributing to making these technologies well fitting in green chemistry, green engineering and process intensification perspectives.

Therefore, manuscripts related to the aforementioned research area are more than welcome. Despite applications in the synthesis of inorganic materials, further applications of these innovative approaches, such as the microwave-assisted sintering of inorganic materials, will also be the focus of this Special Issue.

The detailed monitoring of the process parameters, through the use of scientific equipment, will be considered mandatory for acceptance.  

This Special Issue will welcome both research articles as well as comprehensive reviews covering the most recent scientific literature on the topics proposed.

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.
