Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Safe drinking water, together with water of environmental quality will be two major challenges in the coming decades. The intention of this Special Issue is to connect the study of the quality of water resources regarding the persistence and transport of POPs and the safety of water in the industry, for the benefit of the general public. The time is ripe to understand POPs’ processes in water, based on quantitative structure–activity relationships’ research, in order to face tough health and environmental impact issues that cross national boundaries. With this in mind, research papers will be organized within the following three sections:

1. Analytical methods for recovery and monitoring of POPs in water

2. Toxicological impact of the different chemical classes of POPs

3. Removal of POPs for water purification

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
