Special Issue "Smart Nanomaterials for Environmental Remediation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2020.
Interests: nanomaterials; photocatalyst; nanoporous; degradation of organic pollutants; heavy metal ions
Smart nanomaterials can be defined as nanomaterials with properties engineered to change in a controlled manner under the influence of external stimuli. Temperature, force, pH, moisture, electric fields, and magnetic fields can be included as external stimuli. Smart nanomaterials are expected to make their presence strongly felt in areas like environmental remediation, energy generation and conservation, healthcare, smart textiles, and self-healing materials. of these, considerable interest has been focused on environmental remediation using smart nanomaterials because the wastewater, oily wastewater and polluted air emitted (or produced) by industry and daily activities result in serious worldwide environmental contamination. Environmental remediation deals with the elimination of contaminants or pollution from environmental media like soil, air, groundwater, surface water, or sea water.
This Special Issue considers the recent advancements in smart nanomaterials and related nanomaterials with a special focus on applications for environmental remediation. It is our pleasure to invite you to submit original research papers and short communications within the scope of 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.
