This Special Issue, entitled 'New inorganic Adsorbents for Environmental Purification', is devoted to the characteristics and synthesis of inorganic materials such as metal oxides, hydroxyapatite, mesoporous silica, zeolites, clays, and hybrid materials with their application in the adsorption of cations and anions, intended mainly for solving environmental problems. The publication must include innovative synthesis strategies to obtain low-cost materials or transplant functionality to improve their adsorption capacity and selectivity. Papers including reviews and scientific research results are acceptable. The main subject of interest of many scientific and industrial centers is the preparation of new, modern, and technologically advanced materials that are at the same time low cost, readily available, and effective in operation, while also minimizing the process times. Inorganic compounds, their modification, and composites are one of the most important groups in this area. The release of heavy metals and other pollutants into water and soil as a result of human agricultural and industrial activities can pose a serious threat to the environment and human health. There are many processes for the removal of dissolved heavy metal ions. Recently the emphasis has been put on the use of cheaper alternative materials as potential sorbents for heavy metal removal. Hydroxyapatite, clay, oxides, and their derivatives and composites can be a good choice.

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. 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 2300 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.
