Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Porous materials, including microporous zeolites, mesoporous silica, aerogels, biochar, metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), and covalent organic frameworks (COFs), have found wide application due to their excellent adsorption, separation, ion exchange, and catalytic properties. On the other hand, the availability of good-quality water is going to become a significant challenge in the future. Water pollution caused by organic pollutants, heavy metals, phosphate in water, and other toxics has garnered increasing attention. The practical significance of the abovementioned aspects has encouraged the edition of this Special Issue of Nanomaterials, focusing on recent advances in “Porous Materials for Wastewater Treatment”.

This Special Issue is primed as a multidisciplinary study of some of the currently known and porous-material-based wastewater treatments considered essential in attaining sustainability in water management. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following: i) Advancements in porous-material-based wastewater treatment; ii) new methods such as the biotemplate method for the synthesis of porous materials, iii) porous materials for wastewater treatment; and iv) challenges with the porous-material-based wastewater treatment.

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. Nanomaterials 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 2900 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.
