Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The development of porous material science is changing with each passing day, and its application in the modern chemical industry is becoming more and more extensive. Adsorption and diffusion are important in many fields, such as porous material characterization, adsorption separation process design, and catalysis (especially catalytic kinetics) research. For a long time, people have been interested in the study of adsorption and diffusion on porous materials. The enrichment and development of theory, the update of experimental technology and the progress of practical industrial application make the research in this field more prosperous.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims to introduce the mechanism of adsorption and diffusion in nanoporous materials and the current research progress. In this Special Issue, we cordially invite authors to contribute original research work, expounding a scientifically impartial view of the latest technology in the subject, including the application of nanoporous materials in industrial gas adsorption and separation, and the research on the adsorption mechanisms, and kinetics of nanoporous materials on the surface, etc.

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 2400 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.
