Topical Collection "Nanocrystals"
A topical collection in Crystals (ISSN 2073-4352).
Prof. Dr. Iwan Kityk
Nanocrystals and nanoparticles have been increasingly attracting the attention of scientists in the last twenty years, due to their original size/shape dependent optoelectronic, thermodynamic, mechanical, and catalytic properties. This collection aims to promote transfer of scientific information concerning the chemistry and physics of low-dimensional nanocrystalline materials. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, synthetic approaches to nanocrystals, their surface engineering, the investigation of their chemical-physical, optical and nonlinear optical features, their application in optoelectronics, catalysis, energy conversion and storage, nanomedicine, (bio)sensors. Manuscripts dealing with DFT calculations of the low-dimensional structures, establishment of relation between the electronic and crystalline structures of nanocrystals and their final properties will be also welcomed.

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 collection 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. Crystals 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.
