Special Issue Information

Dear, Colleagues,

The special issue "Conference on Nanomaterials 2011" will contain original articles on contributions to the Zing Nanomaterials Conference 2011 in Cancun, Mexico (http://www.zingconferences.com/index.cfm?page=conference&intConferenceID=62&type=conference). Nanomaterials related topics will span from synthesis and characteristion of nanomaterials to their application and modelling. The conference will actively foster the dialogue between experimentalists and theoreticians. Contributions may include, but are not limited to, issues as diverse as nanocrystal nucleation and growth, synthesis methods, surfaces and surface ligands, physical properties of nanomaterials (optical, magnetic, electrical, etc.), catalytic nanomaterials, graphene, applications in the areas of bioimaging, drug delivery, energy conversion and others, as well as the modelling of all of these aspects.
