Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Carbon nanotubes are quasi-one-dimensional structures of rolled graphene, a one atomic layer of graphite that is the allotrope of sp2 carbon. Carbon nanotubes have outstanding mechanical, electrical, thermal, and optical properties due to that unique atomic structure. In addition, they exhibit large aspect ratios and high surface areas that enable unique electrochemical properties and potential for dispersion in matrices. Structures and assemblies of carbon nanotubes such as arrays or forests, fibers, ribbons, and other two- or three-dimensional structures will exhibit at least one dimension in the microscale and thus enable their use in a wider variety of applications. This Special Issue is specifically dedicated to novel and conceptual applications of carbon nanotube structures and materials based on carbon nanotubes. Applications include sensing via piezoresistive, piezo-impedance, thermoresistive, chemoresistive and electrochemical, magnetoresistive or piezoelectric approaches; electronics including transistors, cooling, field emission, photodection or data transmission; chemical, biological and medical; catalysis; energy and gas storage; filters and membranes; fiber, fabrics, or reinforcements; probing; and others. Papers may be based on experimental, numerical, or analytical studies. Entirely novel applications may include the rationale and a theoretical section.

Kind regards,

Prof. Dr. Jandro Abot

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. C is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1400 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.
