    Special Issue on Sample Preparation, Extraction and Purification

    Sample preparation is an extremely important part of the overall chemical analysis. Sample preparation may involve dissolution, reaction with some chemical species, pulverizing, treatment with a chelating agent (e.g. EDTA), masking, filtering, dilution, sub-sampling or many other techniques.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on exploring Sample Preparation, Extraction and Purification. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Sample preparation techniques
    • Extraction and purification techniques
    • Membrane separation
    • Filtration process
    • Solid-phase extraction
    • Liquid liquid extraction
    • Supercritical fluid extraction
    • Microextraction
    • Masking agents
    • Decomposition reagents


    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly specify the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue - Sample Preparation, Extraction and Purification” should be selected during your submission.
