Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Electrospinning is a versatile and cost-effective technique for the production of multi-functional nanofibers from various materials such as polymers, biopolymers, oxides, non-oxides, composites, hybrids and carbon based materials.

This research topic will aim at gathering resources in the area of the design of nanostructured fibers using electrospinning for wide range of applications such as energy, environment, aerospace, (bio) sensors, smart textile, tissue engineering, and so on. Contributions related to advanced fibers design, organization, functionalization, novel chemical and physical properties, toxicity and original characterization techniques will be as well considered.

This Research topic will deal with: (i) the design of functional nanomaterials (nanofibers, nanotubes, porous nanofibers, core/shell etc.), (ii) the surface modification of these new nanomaterials, (iii) the investigation of their properties and (iv) their applications. Multi-disciplinary studies 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.
