Special Issue "Surface Chemistry in Mineral Processing and Extractive Metallurgy"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 May 2020).
Interests: colloidal chemistry; fate, transformation, and transport of nanomaterials; mineral processing; extractive metallurgy
Interests: mineral processing and extractive metallurgy; surface chemistry and electrochemistry
Interests: Extractive Metallurgy; Metal Recycling; Bio-processing; Inorganic Chemistry
Mineral processing and extractive metallurgy produce metals for industry, mainly including beneficiation and (bio)hydrometallurgy. Surface reaction plays an important role and is even the determining step during the whole beneficiation and (bio)hydrometallurgy process. This Special Issue will focus on recent advances in the surface chemistry, mainly in (bio)flotation and (bio)hydrometallurgy, including but not limited to topics such as surface characterization of minerals; surface adsorption of chemicals and/or microorganisms; and surface corrosion and/or electrochemistry.

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 1600 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.
