Among critical contemporary ecological threats, water pollution is probably one that everybody is aware of. Owing to the rapid industrialization, the increasing amount of components in water bodies, such as organic and inorganic waste, dyes, and heavy metals, is jeopardizing our health. Presently, numerous methods, including membrane filtration, ion exchange, biological degradation, advanced oxidation, photocatalytic degradation, and adsorption, have been adopted to minimize the impacts of the influx of waste released from industry. Therefore, enforcing new approaches to the synthesis of advanced materials will lead to a better society characterized by the pursuit of a sustainable environment.
This Special Issue will provide a forum to disseminate new developments in materials and techniques. Researchers in the field are cordially invited to submit relevant manuscripts concerning the development of innovative material for a Special Issue entitled “Advanced Materials and Technologies for Wastewater Treatment” within the journal Molecules.

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. 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). 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.
