 Special Issue on Heavy Metals


As for what is heavy metal, there is no widely agreed definition. It is used to define heavy metals as the metals with the density ranging from above 3.5 g/cm3 to above 7 g/cm3. Some heavy metals have valuable uses in industry. Some are notably toxic for our health or the environment. Some are essential in trace amounts and play a vital part in maintaining physiological equilibrium.


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


  • Toxic heavy metal
  • Essentiality of heavy metal
  • Effect on human health
  • Effect on environment
  • Application


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 - Heavy Metals” should be selected during your submission.
