The separation of organic or inorganic pollutant materials using membrane, adsorption, and catalytic degradation, as well as Fenton processes, is prominent. The synthesis of structured carbon and nanoparticles plays a vital role in the sustainable separation of foreign components from water, air and soil to preserve an eco-friendly environment. The functionalization of structured nano or microporous materials can extract value-added products such as carbon or biofuel from lingo-cellulosic residues. Moreover, the functionalization of nanoparticles can also enhance antioxidant properties for scavenging free radicles. This Special Issue aims to highlight smart, structured micro or nanoporous materials for industrial applications. Some potential topics might include, but are not limited to: innovative synthesis protocols based on advanced nanotechnology; smart materials; novel preparation; and eco-friendly, sustainable manufacturing technology. Authors are also encouraged to highlight the performance of synthesized materials in versatile fields for the separation of pollutant particles from water, soil, gas, and other process streams.
Our expectation is that this Special Issue will receive attention from process engineers, scientists, scholars, and readers, and consequently will motivate further investigation in this field. This Special Issue will emphasize the various issues and properties of current research trends related to innovative advanced material development and their application in the versatile field of the energy and environment sector.

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. Separations 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 2600 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.
