Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Water quality is one of the main challenges threatening human health, reducing ecosystem functions, and hindering economic growth. The presence of environmental pollution raises the issue of pollution control. Great efforts have been made to limit the release of harmful substances into the environment through wastewater treatment, with the application of novel catalysts. Furthermore, water recycling has proven to be effective and successful in creating a new and reliable water supply without compromising public health. Advances in wastewater treatment technology and health studies of indirect potable reuse have led many to predict that planned indirect potable reuse will soon become more common.

This Special Issue, entitled “Porous Materials and Their Applications in Water Pollution Control and Resource Recycling”, focuses on recent advances in wastewater treatment including, but not limited to:

  • Application of novel porous materials for monitoring of water quality;
  • Synthesis and application of porous materials for water pollution control processes, including municipal, agricultural, industrial, and on-site wastewater;
  • Synthesis and application of porous materials  for water pollution remediation with advanced oxidation processes (photocatalysis, sonolysis, electrochemical, Fenton oxidation, and catalytic activation);
  • Synthesis and application of porous materials for water pollution remediation with conventional wastewater treatments (adsorption, sedimentation and membrane filtration);
  • Application of porous materials for water recycling and treatment of wastewater for reuse.

We invite contributions from researchers involved in experimental and theoretical aspects linked to water quality monitoring and water pollution remediation technologies.

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. Water 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 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.
