Themed collection Molecular Engineering for Water Technologies

About this collection

From MSDE.
Guest Editors: Dr Seth Darling (Argonne National Laboratory, USA) and Professor Hao-Cheng Yang (Sun Yat-sen University, China).
Challenges are mounting globally with respect to both water quality and quantity, driven by unsustainable practices, aging infrastructure, climate change, urbanization, and other macrotrends.
This special collection of papers includes papers on topics from fundamental studies on the molecular interactions of water and solutes with interfaces and with one another to the design of new materials and processes for water treatment and for mitigating ubiquitous phenomena such as fouling, scaling, and corrosion. Approaches range from molecular and multiscale simulations to interfacial engineering to transport under extreme confinement to advanced characterization methodologies.
