Special Issue "Particle-Laden Fluid Interfaces: Dynamics and Interfacial Rheology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 August 2020.
The interaction of particles and fluid interfaces is ubiquitous in science and technology, playing an important role in several aspects of modern life ranging from the stabilization of emulsions and foams with dietary interest to toxicity aspects associated with the inhalation of environmental aerosols, and from tertiary oil recovery processes to the design of hierarchical functional materials. Interest in particle-laden interfaces has driven important research efforts to unravel the physico-chemical bases governing the formation and properties of this type of system. Therefore, our understanding of the theoretical and practical aspects of particle-laden interfaces is paramount. This Special issue is devoted to fundamental and applied aspects of the study of particles at fluid interfaces to provide a comprehensive perspective on the current status of this important research field. It is expected that this will help to provide a bridge between the most fundamental knowledge on particle-laden interfaces and the development of new applications based on such systems.
This Special Issue on “Particle-laden fluid interfaces” aims to collect high-quality research studies addressing challenges in the broad area of process modeling and control in stand-alone or individual systems. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Characterization of particle-laden interfaces;
- Interfacial rheology of particles at fluid interfaces;
- Dynamics and structure of particle-laden interfaces;
- Active particles at fluid interfaces;
- Stabilization of foams and emulsions using particles; and
- Toxicity aspects of inhaled particles.

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. Processes 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 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Please note that for papers submitted after 30 June 2020 an APC of 1500 CHF applies. 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.
