Interests: materials chemistry; materials; nanomaterials; composites; material characteristics; graphene; preparation and characterization of carbon precursors from coal and petroleum derivatives; design of carbon materials (e.g. fibers, composites, graphene, etc.) for structural and energy storage applications

Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The World Conference on Carbon (Carbon 2018) will take place in Madrid (Spain), July 1–6, 2018. The conference aims to provide an innovative and comprehensive overview of the latest research developments on carbon science and applications. This Special Issue will contain accepted papers presented during Carbon 2018, related to graphene and graphite, advanced carbon materials: Nanotubes, fullerenes, carbon fibers and carbon-based composites. The selected papers could include, not only the carbon materials preparation, modification, characterization and properties, but also relevant applications in the fields of energy conversion and storage, catalysis, medicine and biology, among others.

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.
