Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Tribological applications of nanocomposites (polymers, metals/alloys, and ceramics) are attracting increasing attention in various industrial sectors. Tribological performance, fundamental mechanisms, and further tribo-related applications drive the research and commercialization development of these nanocomposites. The study into the tribological nature of nanocomposites, as well as the related surface science, wear mechanics, material design, and tribological measurement advances, has yielded many exciting results in recent years. Considering the rapid development and huge demands for the design of novel nanocomposites for tribological and related applications, this Special Issue focuses on “Tribology and Tribo-Related Applications of Nanocomposites”.

In particular, topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Design of novel nanocomposites (polymers, metals/alloys, and ceramics) for tribology;
  • Advanced technologies for tribo-measurements in nanocomposites;
  • Modeling and simulation of tribology in nanocomposites;
  • Fundamental science related to the tribological performance of nanocomposites;
  • Extended applications of nanocomposites in tribo-related fields;
  • Insightful opinions and comments on the tribo-research of nanocomposites.

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. Coatings 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.
