Special Issue Information

Dear Colleageus,

The MDPI journal Nanomaterials welcomes contributions to the Special Issue entitled "Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology to Detect, Identify and Remove Contaminants". The main objective of this Special Issue is to publish outstanding papers presenting the latest research in the field of nanomaterials and nanotechnology and their applications in the detection, identification, and removal of contaminants in soil, water, wastewater, and air.

The Special Issue aims at collecting perspectives, review articles, and technical papers on topics that include, but are not limited to:

  • Advanced nanomaterials in the context of a clean environment;
  • Synthesis and characterization of novel nanomaterials to detect, identify, and remove pollutants from solids, liquids, and air;
  • Theoretical study of nanomaterials;
  • Toxicity of nanomaterials;
  • Safe and sustainable use of nanomaterials in any environmental remediation applications;
  • Exposure assessment and life cycle analysis;

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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
