Dr. Hamedreza Javadian is a researcher who works on using materials, such as polymeric nanocomposite, magnetic nanocomposite, bionanocomposites, and nanoporous materials, in different fields, mainly environmental applications. He has published over 70 international peer-reviewed papers. In addition, he is also a reviewer of more than 45 journals.


With the rapid growth of industrial production processes, the pollution of water resources by metals and organic compounds, such as dyes, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, etc., and air pollution by hazardous gases, such as CO, CO2, etc., have become a serious challenge that must be overcome due to the direct toxicological effects on the environment and human health. Despite extensive research successfully conducted for the treatment of aqueous and gaseous pollutants, attempts are focused on finding new methods that are more effective as well as improving those that are commonly used. One of the common and efficient treatment techniques is based on using solid adsorbents.


Synthetic adsorbents are extensively used for the treatment of pollutants but those that have the least harmful side effects on the environment, in addition to high efficiency in the treatment of pollutants, are of higher importance. To have the minimum harmful side effects of adsorbents on the environment, green chemistry is efficiently used to design chemical adsorbents that reduce or eliminate the generation of hazardous substances. Adsorbents derived from renewable bio-resources are also applied for this purpose and the development of sustainable chemistry. A bio-based adsorbent is an adsorbent intentionally made from substances derived from living (or once-living) organisms. These adsorbents are sometimes referred to as bioadsorbents. Bio-based adsorbents, sustainable adsorbents, and adsorbents based on green chemistry can be used effectively for the green treatment of aqueous and gaseous pollutants.


All researchers working on the synthesis and application of novel bio-based adsorbents, sustainable adsorbents, and adsorbents based on green chemistry, in the forms of nano and non-nano adsorbents, for the treatment of aqueous and gaseous pollutants are cordially invited to submit original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue of Journal of Renewable Materials.
