Special Issue "Research on Hydrometallurgical Separation Technology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 August 2022 | Viewed by 3396
The reservation of metallic resources has been an urgent global issue. In addition to mining, the recycling of critical metals and removal of hazardous elements have been at the focus of research for this purpose. Hydrometallurgical techniques such as solvent extraction and ion exchange has been extensively used for the recovery of critical metals and removal of hazardous elements. New challenges to design and prepare new reagents of extractants and adsorbents, to propose new concepts, and to establish new processes, and so on, continue for the efficient separation of metal resources.
This Special Issue aims to present readers with the hottest topics in hydrometallurgy. The issue invites contributions relating, but not limited, to fibers of membrane design and preparation, new precipitants, flotation and microreactor systems, applications of host compounds, treatment of environmental issues, and applications with a range of hydrometallurgical techniques.

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 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.
