Water Treatment and Harvesting

Submission status
Submission deadline

Access to clean water that is safe and readily available for drinking, domestic use, hygiene, and food production is an essential requirement for health, well being, and societal development as a whole. However this fundamental need is not met for large parts of the world’s population. It is therefore unsurprising that access to clean water has been recognized as a sustainable development goal (SDG) by the United Nations. This Collection features recent developments in materials science and engineering that can offer solutions to improve our capabilities in water treatment and water harvesting technologies, from fundamental investigations of materials properties to practical demonstrations of their applications. 

In this Collection, Nature Communications, Communications Chemistry, Communications Materials, Communications Engineering and Nature Water welcome submissions that report advances in water filtration and desalination, water pollution remediation and water harvesting with demonstrated potential for improved application.
