Special Issue "Nanostructured Materials for Adsorption"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2021.
Interests: adsorption; interfacial phenomena; depollution; decontamination; calorimetry
Interests: molecular simulation; adsorption/diffusion; porous solides (clays, MOFS, and LDHs); environmental, energy, and health applications
Nanostructured materials have progressively drawn the attention of a large part of the scientific community, in particular for their interfacial and sorption properties. The main characteristics of nanostructured materials are their ability to demonstrate enhanced adsorption efficiency because of their surface reactivity or their structured porosity.
We invite investigators to submit papers that discuss the recent developments and results about materials exhibiting nanostructuration (nanoparticles, micro and/or mesoporous materials, lamellar materials, hierarchical adsorbents, hybrids materials, etc.) with regard to the modification of their adsorption properties (capacity, transport and diffusion, affinity and energy of interaction, confinement, etc.). Experimental as well as theoretical inquiries will be addressed, with new techniques, including local and dynamic developments, and the various types of progress in simulation (GCMC, DFT, and multiscale approaches). This includes adsorption in the gas phase or in the liquid phase, for applications in the fields of depollution, separation, purification, drug delivery, energy storage, CO2 capture, 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 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.
