In recent years, the use of physicochemical methods, such as advanced oxidation processes (AOPs), for the treatment of waste water has consistently been gaining ground. These processes are based on the in situ production of very reactive oxygen species (mainly, but not exclusively, hydroxyl radicals, including technologies such as semiconductor photocatalysis, photon Fenton and Fenton like processes, ozonation, wet air oxidation, sonochemistry, electrochemical oxidation, gamma ray, etc.). At the same time, research into hybrid processes has been steadily growing over the past few years, involving more than one process, resulting in synergy effects, leading to a higher efficiency, which will lead to the implementation of these processes on a large scale. Under this perspective, this Special Issue of Water welcomes the application of various advanced oxidation processes for the treatment of highly resistant compounds, as well as for disinfection. Articles dealing with the application of new catalytic materials for environmental protection, as well as the experimental and modeling of pilot plants and hybrid processes, are particularly welcome.

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.
