Special Issue "Materials for Waste Water Treatment"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: microporous materials; carbon nanotubes; photocatalytic materials; water purification; environmental protection; ecomaterials
Due to the rapid industrial and urban growth and the massive use of agricultural chemicals, in these last few decades, the contamination of water environments has become a looming problem. As a result of this problem, we are experiencing a greater awareness and sensitivity for the environment and for the health of citizens.
The answer to this growing demand for wastewater treatment can be given by new and advanced materials that combine innovative research methodologies and strategies with the main objective to allow the disposal of human and industrial effluents without endangering human health or unacceptable damage to the natural environment.
This Special Issue invites original research contributions and reviews regarding recent advances in the development, production, and characterization of wastewater treatment materials, such as nanomaterials, microporous materials, photocatalytic materials, natural materials, and more.

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 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. Materials 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 2000 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.
