Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
We invite contributions to this Special Issue on aspects listed in the keywords, covering recent advances and innovations in flotation chemistry, which will be of direct interest to researchers and practitioners in the mineral processing field. Contributions reporting on mineral surface chemistry, the development and design of novel reagents, and mechanism exploration of mineral/reagent interactions using advanced tools and instruments are especially welcome.
- Minerals (sulfide oxides, silicates, sparingly soluble minerals, iron minerals, rare earth minerals, etc.)
- Mineral chemistry (surface reactivity, surface broken bonds, surface energy, wettability, surface hydration, surface charge, etc.)
- Reagents (collectors, depressants, dispersants, etc.)
- Reagent chemistry (QSAR, molecular design, assembly, etc.)
- Mineral/reagent interaction (molecular dynamics simulation, quantum chemistry simulation, AFM, XPS, QCM-D, SFG, etc.)
This Special Issue is dedicated to Prof. Yuehua Hu, who is currently Professor at the school of minerals processing and bioengineering, Central South University, on the occasion of his 60th birthday (to be celebrated on 1 January, 2022), and in honor of his many achievements in flotation chemistry.
Brief Introduction about Prof. Hu
Professor Yuehua Hu is now the executive vice-president of Central South University (CSU), and the academic leader of mineral engineering discipline of CSU. He also serves as the vice president of Nonferrous Metals Society of China, and vice president of China Mineral Processing Congress. Since 1991, he has been awarded over RMB120M in competitive grant funding from the National natural science foundation of China, Ministry of Science and Technology, Ministry of Education, and national and private industry. He has received numerous awards and honours over the years. These include the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars in 1999, Chang Jiang Scholars Program in 2000, National University Distinguished Teacher Award in 2009. As a supervisor or cosupervisor, he has trained 40 PhDs, 42 masters and 11 postdoctoral fellows, 18 of whom are full professors in universities/institutes and half of whom are senior managers in mining companies. He authored and co-authored over 300 papers with 8 highly cited papers, h-index reaching 46. He had more than 70 authorized Chinese patents and most of them has been transfered and/or applied in industry.

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. Minerals 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 1800 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.
