Special Issue in Crystals: Crystalline Adsorbents—in Theory and Practice
Environmental pollution is one of major types of pollution in contemporary society, since it includes the emission of chemical substances into the environment in amounts exceeding the self-purification capacity of the environment, which has an adverse impact on human health and ecosystems. The environmental pollution concept can be related to substances emitted in thousands of tons (for example, oil products, CO2) as well as in gram quantities (for example nanomaterials, dioxins, and pharmaceuticals appearing in waste streams). The adverse impacts of some pollutants have been known since antiquity, for example those of arsenic or mercury, however, the adverse impacts of others have only been recognized in recent years—so-called emerging pollutants. Studies considering the significance of environmental chemicals or related to all aspects of the origin or future of pollutants in the environment and dedicated to revealing their impacts on humans and ecosystems will be welcome. The activities necessary to restore environmental quality in the case of environmental pollution, including the development of remediation technologies resulting in case studies and demonstrating the efficiency of elaborated approaches will be another major focus of this Special Issue.
