This Special Issue is focused on current state-of-the-art research related to “Environmental Applications of Polymers”. The use of polymeric materials in environmental remediation is widespread, with applications that include filtration, coagulation, flocculation, dispersion, solubilization, and adsorption/absorption-based processes. The removal of chemical and biological contaminants from soil, water, and atmospheric compartments of the environment is an issue of increasing concern due to the buildup of pollutants in the environment.
Papers are sought that describe experimental and theoretical advances in the fields of the science, engineering, and technology of polymers relevant to “Environmental Applications of Polymers”, in line with the scope of this journal. The scope of this Special Issue encompasses the development of polymer materials for environmental applications, such as the immobilization, separation, or removal of environmental contaminants of a chemical or biological origin.
Of particular interest is the development new polymer materials with improved structure and function that result from the synthesis and processing of natural/synthetic polymer materials (and modified forms) that provide new insights into the structure–property relationships that lead to enhanced functionality for a diverse range of applications.

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 2300 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.
