Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Zeolites have been widely applied as adsorbents, catalysts, advanced novel materials, etc., owing to their unique physicochemical characteristics, such as ion exchange and adsorption-desorption properties. Nanosized zeolites efficiently improve these properties due to the increased specific surface area.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials invites contributions in synthesis and applications of functionalized nanozeolites, nanoscale zeolite materials, nano-crystal size of ZSM-5, nanostructured catalysts, flexible films and membranes for medicine, environmental, sensor applications, etc. Contributions are welcomed in synthetic novel nanocomposites with a zeolitic framework and high exterior surface area, shorter pore pathway, high cationic exchange capacity, water holding capacity, and catalytic activity.

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.
