Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

During the last few years, nanocomposites have become interesting for several industrial applications due to the possibility of adding functional properties by including nanostructures into a host material. Over the same period, 3D printing and additive manufacturing technologies have reached a good level of development with the possibility of being integrated in production lines for the manufacturing of complex components. The possibility of joining the functional properties of nanocomposites to 3D printing technologies is a present challenge, aiming to produce, in a single shot, complex components for industrial applications.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials, “Multifunctional Nanocomposites in 3D Printing Technologies” aims to provide an overview on recent advances in the development of new materials, new printing technologies, and improvements to their performances.

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 1200 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.
