Special Issue in Processes: Various Adsorbents for Water Purification Processes, Volume II
Dye effluents released from numerous dye-utilizing industries, such as textile, chemical, paper and pulp, tanning, paint, plastic, food, and cosmetic, are harmful to the environment and living things. Dye wastewaters are rich in numerous hazardous chemicals. The purification of wastewaters containing dyes is becoming more and more important and to avoid not only legal consequences but also potential threats for the environment. A long-term sustainable and efficient dye effluent treatment method should be established to eliminate this problem. Currently, numerous studies are being conducted to find the ideal dye removal method. The most popular methods for dye removal are biological (adsorption by biomass, algae degradation, aerobic-anaerobic treatment, enzyme degradation, etc.), chemical (advanced oxidation process, electrochemical destruction, oxidation, ozonation, photochemical, and ultraviolet irradiation), and physical (adsorption, coagulation, flocculation, ion exchange, irradiation, membrane filtration, nano-filtration or ultra-filtration and reverse osmosis) and various combinations of the three. It is difficult to decide on one technique that solves the dominant problem of dye leakage; however, the search for new reports on effective ways to remove dyes is extremely important.
The Special Issue “Recent Advances in Dyes Removal Technologies” will publish experimental and review papers, as well as short communications, discussing recent developments in the field of dye wastewater treatment and purification of aqueous solutions using biological, chemical, and physical methods. The topics of the papers to be submitted to this Special Issue are defined by the keywords presented below.

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. 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 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs).
