Special Issue "Physical, Physicochemical and Functional Properties of Water Treated with Plasmas"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (11 December 2020).
Interests: chemical and physicochemical modification of carbohydrates; nanotechnology: modifications of carbon nanotubes and quantum dots, luminescent carbon nanotubes and polysaccharide foils, nanowater; metal–metal interactions in biological systems; weak electric and magnetic phenomena and their applications
There are numerous research reports and presentations on the treatment of aqueous solutions and suspensions as well as water-containing species such as plants, food products, isolated microorganisms, even concrete, all of them containing water. Particular plasmas evoke several interesting changes of physical, physicochemical, and functional properties of treated materials. Undoubtedly, observed effects are associated with a building, reconstruction and ruining water macrostructure included therein. These processes depending on the type of plasma may result in microbiological sterilization of the treated material, but also in a stimulation of some microorganisms.
The latter may influence the growth of plants, their bioaccumulation of metal ions, and synthesis of chlorophyll and carotenoids. Treatment with some types of plasma can evoke some chemical reactions, among them some facilitated, for instance, by hydration and transport of hydrated species.
In this issue, papers are welcome which are associated with such phenomena.

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. 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 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.
