Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The geophysical and chemical dynamics at the solid–water interface ultimately control the transport properties of geomaterials via dissolution/precipitation reactions and are of paramount importance for the fate of organic and inorganic contaminants in such systems. The mechanistic process understanding on the nanoscale is a prerequisite for the reliable prediction of the long-term behavior of chemical compounds in the natural and anthropogenic influenced environment. We encourage papers on research in the interdisciplinary field of earth and material science with an additional aspect of biogeochemical processes. Nucleation and nanoparticle formation are key aspects of strategic metal ore formation, biogeochemical cycling, and industrial processes, such as early cement hydration and advanced remediation strategies. Contributions on theoretical approaches, including molecular dynamic simulations and geochemical/surface complexation modeling, are also encouraged.

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 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.
