Decarbonizing the global energy supply is a central challenge if the world is to achieve significant CO2 emission reductions necessary to avoid the dangers of climate change. Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) has been entrusted with about 20% of the reduction in anthropogenic CO2 emission. CO2 capture is essential for CCS, however, most of the current capture technologies are still on their way to commercialization, due to unacceptable economic and environmental impacts. Nano-scale tuning of sorbent materials has been regarded as an approachable way to enhance the efficiency and cost effectiveness of CO2 capture processes. The current Special Issue is, thus, named “Nanomaterials in CO2 Capture” and calls for submissions, including research articles, communications and reviews. The topics that would be covered in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, nanomaterials (e.g., Calcium based; Magnesium based; Alkali zirconate; Alkali silicate; Hydrotalcite; MOFs; Carbon materials; Solid amine-based; Graphite/graphene-based; Zeolite-based; Silica-based; Polymer-based; Alkali metal carbonate-based; waste derived). Articles focusing on the environmental aspects related to nanomaterials, carbon capture or life cycle analysis will also be welcome.

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 2200 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.
