Special Issue Information

Microextraction techniques provide numerous advantages to sample preparation steps compared to traditional techniques, such as the reduction of the consumption of organic solvents from milliliters to just a few microliters, the removal of additional cleaning steps (which represent additional time and potential loss of analyte), and the improvement of selectivity and enrichment factors. For these reasons, researchers have in recent decades focused on designing new and innovative microextraction approaches.

The present Special Issue covers the recent advances on the development and application of microextraction techniques, as well as the use of novel (nano)materials and solvents, which offer great opportunities in the development of phases for more efficient and versatile approaches.

We strongly hope that this Special Issue will provide an analytical perspective of the current research involved in the field of microextraction. Original articles and reviews articles by experts are particularly welcomed.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Separations is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English.
