Carbon nanotubes are rolled up sheets of one-atom-thick carbon, also known as graphene, and can therefore be either single walled or multi-walled. Depending on what angle the graphene sheet is rolled at, as well as the diameter of the nanotube, which may also be metallic or semi-conducting in nature. The chemical bonding of the carbon atoms in nanotubes is stronger than that found in diamond, and provides carbon nanotubes with immense strength. They also possess excellent electrical and heat conducting properties which have made them the focus of research throughout the worldwide scientific community for the past 25 years. With the amazing properties they display they have found applications in many areas of science and technology including, for example, materials science, energy production and storage, nanotechnology, microscopy, drug delivery and microelectronics. This Special Issue of Nanomaterials is aimed at presenting the very latest developments in the applications of carbon nanotubes by leading research groups in the field. These invited contributions aim to give a state-of-the-art description of the crucial role that carbon nanotubes play in improving research and making a host of new and exciting devices possible.

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.
