Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
MDPI has proposed to edit a Special Issue entitled “Nanomaterials in Historic Buildings”. The ongoing enhanced research activities on promoting the use of nanomaterials in the maintenance of historic buildings established the need for disseminating the invaluable contribution of nanomaterials in this specific field. In this respect, in order to properly highlight the discipline, world-class researchers are invited to contribute their expertise. This Special Issue contributes to recent advances and trends of innovative nanostructured materials for cleaning, consolidation and protection of historic buildings.
Recommended topics to be covered include, but are not limited to the following:
- Innovative advanced materials as cleaning and protective agents for the conservation of historic buildings
- Photocatalytic and other self-cleaning nanostructured coatings for historic buildings
- Mortars and plasters with nano-additives
- Energy-efficient coatings with nano-materials
- Energy-efficient paints with nano-materials
- Advanced hybrid sol-gel coatings for historic buildings
- Smart cleaning agents for historic buildings
- Antifungal nanomaterials for historic buildings
- Anti-graffiti materials for historic buildings
- Sustainability of advanced nano-materials for conservation of historic buildings

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. Buildings 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 1800 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.
