Special Issue "Polymer-Based Materials as Ecological Adsorbents for Environmental Protection"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 September 2019).
Interests: Heavy metal removal; biosorption/adsorption; environmental remediation; low-cost biosorbents/adsorbents; wastewater treatment; soil remediation; waste recycling
This Special Issue will discuss new uses of polymer-based materials as ecological adsorbents for the removal of inorganic and organic pollutants from the environment, both at the laboratory scale and industrial scale. New technologies for the removal of inorganic or organic pollutants from the environment, which are ecological and respect the principles of sustainable development, are preferred. Authors can submit their work related to the main aspects of polymer-based material use as adsorbents for the removal of inorganic and organic pollutants from environment, namely, synthesis and characterization of polymer-based adsorbents, methods and procedures of inorganic and organic pollutants from environment (wastewater; contaminated soils; polluted air), valorisation possibilities of exhausted polymer-based adsorbents, etc. Submissions related to recycling, environmental impacts, and policies of polymer-based material valorisation in the context of the circular economy are also encouraged.

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. Polymers 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 1500 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.
