Special Issue Information
The worldwide water demand is becoming an important issue for the increasing population, in which case the scientific communities can respond with more industry-focused solutions in terms of advanced products and processes for water purification, waste water treatment and recycling, and water desalination. Based on technological advances during the last years in water treatment and the variety of composite polymer materials developed recently, this special issue is dedicated to original approaches and/or extremely improved products and processes applicable in water treatment with the focus on inorganic/organic pollutants removal and desalination. Therefore, original papers, reviews, short communications and case studies, on the topic of polymer composites, hybrid polymer and biopolymer structures, and interpenetrated networks applicable in the water treatment field are welcomed. Original applications and/or development of green technologies for water treatment 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 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.
