Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since their discovery in 1990s by Iijima, carbon nanotubes (CNT) have gained great interest within scientific community. Such sp2 carbon nanomaterials have been proposed for use in different technological fields, including chemistry, engineering, materials science, and nanomedicine. This Special Issue aims to be a platform for scientists working on exploring the CNT-related structures from both a fundamental and application point of views, sharing the new insights into the tailored functionalization procedures for conferring specific activities. Topics include, but are not restricted to, covalent and non-covalent functionalization routes with small molecules and/or macromolecules, development of instrumental and functional characterization techniques, innovative application opportunities, as well as the key advantages and limitation in long term use.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
