Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

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.
