The Environmental Nanotechnology section publishes high-quality research on the application of nanoscience and nanotechnology to reducing or preventing damage to the environment. It presents cutting-edge remediation technologies and advanced nanomaterials for sustainability, as well as the sustainable design, development and use of nanotechnologies and nanomaterials. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Rational design of nanomaterials for water, soil and air remediation (e.g nanosorbents, nanomembranes, nanohydrocolloids)
• Nano-sensors for humidity, nutrients, water quality, and biological/chemical contamination
• Nano-enabled treatment technologies (e.g. nanofiltration)
• Nanopollutants (e.g. environmental fate, reactivity and transformations)
All contributions must demonstrate a clear advance in the nanoscience/nanotechnology tools used in a clear environmental/sustainability context. Studies focusing on routine environmental monitoring and remediation, as well as “end-of-pipe” technologies do not fall within the scope of this section.
Indexed in: coming soon
Environmental Nanotechnology welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Correction, Editorial, Field Grand Challenge, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review and Specialty Grand Challenge.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Environmental Nanotechnology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Environmental Nanotechnology will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Nanotechnology.
