Topical Collection in International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health: Environmental Chemistry and Technology
The mid-twentieth century and the beginning of this new century are characterized by rapid technological development which has led to tragic consequences for the environment. Environmental contamination from metals and metalloids has increased significantly worldwide in the past few decades due to urbanization and industrialization. Their negative environmental impacts are evident in terms of air, water, and land pollution due to emission of toxic pollutants. It is now necessary to try to combine the environment that surrounds us with technological progress. As one great writer said, “The world is a fine place and worth fighting for” (Ernest Hemingway).
This Special Issue aims to scrutinize the different aspects of environmental problems in different fields ranging from geology to chemistry, to biology, to engineering, in order to evaluate the behavior, the transport of some chemicals in different environmental spheres, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and lithosphere, the transfers from one sphere to the other, and the possibility of developing new technologies to protect the environment. Although the scientific community is continually looking for the identification of relevant indicators, to assess the impacts on human health of ingestion and assimilation of chemical substances, the question is far from being resolved. However, biomonitoring studies could be considered as the building block to evaluate possible effects of chronic low environmental exposure, always remembering that safeguarding the environment in which we live is linked to safeguarding human health.

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. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health 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 2300 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.
