Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The presence of hazardous substances in the environment is growing in many countries due to the increase in industrial and agricultural activities. Therefore, the determination of such chemicals in different matrices is very important for assessing the risk caused by them to humans, animals, and plants. As a result, there is a great demand for the introduction of new analytical methodologies applicable for their determination. This development is often aimed at simplification of analytical methods and lowering their influence on the environment. The rules of green analytical chemistry are often taken into account by many scientists who are aware of their own influence on the environment.

This special issue on “Various Materials and Technologies for Hazardous Substances Determination” seeks high-quality works focusing on the latest novel advances in new methods for the determination of hazardous substances. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Newly synthesized sorbents, e.g. sorbents for solid-phase microextraction;
  • Newly synthesized extracting solvents, e.g. ionic liquids, surfactants, deep eutectic solvents, and switchable-hydrophilicity solvents;
  • Proposals for new sample preparation techniques and development of the existing ones;
  • Development of green sample preparation procedures.

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. Processes 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.
