Nanomaterials, as one of the fast-growing discipline fields, contain true nanoscale structures that enable novel properties or advanced functions. The production of advanced materials has brought more and more focus on nanomaterials due to their significant chemical physical properties and surface effect. Not only materials scientists but also researchers from other disciplines such as physics, chemistry and biology have been involved in working on science and applications of nanostructured materials with varied emphasis on synthesis, processing, characterization, and applications (energy, environment, life science, electronics etc.). The special issue covers current trends and developments in nanomaterials. The papers can involve both the basic research and the application development relating to experimental, theoretical, computational, and applications of nanomaterials.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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.
