Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Organic nanomaterials have attracted much interest in the recent past with the discovery of MOFs, COFs, and organic-mineral oxide hybrid materials. Because of their intrinsic properties, surpassing those of more traditional materials (activated carbons or zeolites), these materials have been tested for many applications including sensing, drug delivery, catalysis and sorption. In this Special Issue of the journal, the sorption properties of organic nanomaterials will be highlighted. Sorption is an important property that deserves to be investigated as it is an environmental friendly process in different ways. First, sorption is usually spontaneous, which is already very favourable in terms of cost. Second, there are environmental issues which are required to be solved; sorption could be the appropriate answer.

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.
