The “Materials” Journal’s special issue invites the original research articles and comprehensive reviews on multifunctional materials and their composites, including biocomposites, eco-composites, smart composites, structural composites, layered composites, nanocomposites, and composites of natural materials. The reinforcing filler may vary from nano- to micro- scale in metal, metal oxides, clay minerals, carbin nanostructures, and etc. The research works related to the surface modification of these fillers for composite application are encouraged to submit to this journal. The chemically functionalized fillers can homogeneously disperse in the matrix and forms stiffer, stronger, tougher, lighter and more durable polymer composite materials. This special issue covers all aspects of composites research, from material processing, development, characterization to application. It particularly encourages an interdisciplinary research activity to the investigation of multifunctional composites.
