Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is focused on the most recent advances in the development of bio-based nanomaterials applicable for the elimination of contaminants from the environment (water, soil and air) and resource recovery from wastes towards a circular economy.

The following topics are welcome in this Special Issue:

  • Rational design and synthesis of biopolymer-based nanomaterials, including nanocomposites, hybrid materials and surface-modified nanomaterials, for applications in the adsorption and/or degradation of pollutants;
  • Assessment of the environmental impact and ecotoxicity of the bio-based nanomaterials;
  • Resource recovery from wastes using bio-based nanomaterials;
  • Mechanistic and computational studies regarding adsorption and reactions at the interfaces with bio-based nanomaterials.

Dr. Ana Luísa Daniel da Silva

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. Molecules 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 2700 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.
