Boron nitride (BN) is a III−V material, well known for its outstanding physico-chemical properties, such high chemical and thermal stabilities and unique electronic and optical properties. In the past few decades, Boron Nitride nanostructures, such as nanosheets, nanotubes, porous material, nanocapsules, etc., have attracted a great deal of interest because of their potential applications in functional devices.
The research topic of this Special Issue will consider: (i) the design of nanostructured boron nitride nanostructures with controlled crystal structure, porosity and dimensionality, (ii) functionalization of boron nitride, and (iii) prospective applications of boron nitride nanostructures and materials.
Multi-disciplinary studies, as well as strategies dealing with the conversion of precursors into functional nanostructured boron nitride, will be particularly welcome.

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. Nanomaterials 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 1500 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.
