Special Issue "Hybrid Porous Nanomaterials for Energy and Environment"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2022.
Interests: gas separation by using membranes and sorbents, water treatment by using membranes and sorbents, pore structure characterization, small angle scattering (SAXS/SANS) in conjunction with adsorption for evaluation the fluid adsorption mechanism, new hybrid porous materials for energy & environment, nanostructured materials for carbon dioxide capture
Porous materials have applications in a wide range of research and industrial processes. Food industry, agricultural products, biomedical and pharmaceutical technology, wood processing, urban construction, ceramic products, gas separation, filtration processes, drying, and catalysts are just a few examples. The scientific interest has increased in the investigation of the porous nanomaterial properties—especially the properties of hybrid porous nanomaterials. As hybrid nanomaterials contain two or more different components, typically inorganic and organic components which are brought together by specific interactions, the result is the synergistic enhancement of their chemical and functional properties. These new enhanced properties have stirred the interest of both academy and industry towards energy, environment, and health applications. Hybrid nanoporous materials can provide solutions in numerous applications, such as fuel cells, batteries, sensors and bio-sensors, building materials, gas separation and storage processes, catalytic reactions, and water treatment processes, to name a few.
Within this context, this Special Issue entitled “Hybrid Porous Nanomaterials for Energy and Environment” aims to compile relevant contributions exhibiting the potentialities of emerging hybrid porous nanomaterials with potential applications bilaterally in energy and the environment. We particularly welcome experimental and modeling articles, as well as some review articles dealing with the most significant progress in preparation, properties investigation, as well as processes and technologies of hybrid porous nanomaterials.

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 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.
