Water Science and Technology special issue on

Advanced adsorbents to remove special pollutants from water and wastewater



In association with the 13th Brazilian Meeting on Adsorption, we would like to present this Special Issue on Advanced adsorbents to remove special pollutants from water and wastewater. The Brazilian Meeting on Adsorption is held every two years by different institutions and the main objective is to bring together the scientific, academic and industrial communities in the Adsorption field of Brazil and abroad, seeking greater interaction between the R&D groups and national/international companies. In addition, the event disseminates the science of Adsorption in the academic and industrial environment, showcasing the latest progress in the area, fostering interaction and academic-scientific integration among researchers in this field.

This special issue will focus on the following topics:

  • Fundamentals of adsorption
  • Synthesis and characterisations of adsorbents and catalysts
  • Molecular modelling and simulation of adsorptive processes
  • Biotechnology
  • Pilot-scale experiments in realistic conditions
  • Economic and environmental evaluation of the fate of adsorbents


 Key dates:

  • Deadline for manuscript submission: 1st February 2021
  • Expected publication: May 2021



  • Lucas Meili, Federal University of Alagoas, Brazil
  • Melissa Vieira, University of Campinas, Brazil
  • Marie-Noelle Pons, CNRS Université de Lorraine, Nancy, France
