Special Issue Information
This Special Issue will focus on studies related to the development and application of novel analytical methods to measure the occurrence of emerging contaminants in the environment. Conventional analytical methods for the routine measurement of chemical contaminants in the environment are, to a large degree, designed and optimized for the detection of compounds of concern that are commonly encountered in environmental systems. While conventional approaches are valuable for surveying and monitoring systems for contaminants of known or historical concern, many compounds of emerging environmental concern, including pharmaceuticals, personal care products, and other novel commercial and industrial compounds, are not always fully captured through these routine analytical approaches. This is due to a variety of reasons, including missing or unavailable analytical standards, matrix interferences, and uncertainty in relation to which compounds might be present and causing environmental problems. Currently, there is a significant advancement in the field of analytical environmental chemistry towards the development of novel analytical methods to increase our ability to discover and account for compounds that are either newly emerging as contaminants of concern or that have been historically overlooked.

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. Toxics 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.
