Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Compared to conventional composites nanocomposites are multiphase solid materials where one or more of the phases have at least one nano-sized dimension (i.e. with less than of 100 nm). The properties of nanocomposites show synergistic improvement in comparison to the properties of those of the component phases individually or can be completely new, unknown in the parent constituent materials. Nanocomposites have attracted tremendous attention due to their unique morphological and structural properties that qualify them to be used in many areas, for example as effective adsorbents or heterogeneous photocatalysts in environmental protection.

This Special Issue “Synthesis, Characterization and Applications of Nanocomposites in Adsorption and Heterogeneous Photocatalysis” will present the latest developments in nanocomposites design, new methods of synthesis, and applications is adsorption and photodegradation of various environmental pollutants. Adsorption measurements can be carried out by batch methods and dynamic inverse chromatography methods. Catalysts and photocatalysts researches can be performed in heterogeneous conditions in the liquid or gas phase.

I kindly invite you to submit your research contribution, research article, communication, or review to this Special Issue.

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.
