From its advent, nanoscience and nanotechnology appear to deal with the deep structure of matter, substances and/or fields in mutual interaction. However, there are considerable misconceptions nowadays regarding nanoscience, whether it is scaled in time, in space, or in energy. In fact, the real nano-revolution refers to the ability to intervene and model matter at the nano-dimension rather than to just describe it in this realm. For this reason, the present Special Issue emerged as an essential service to the international community working with the nano-world at the molecular level in various ways: from the frontier’s of new nano-insights, to the exotic limiting nano-design and synthesis, towards innovative structures (materials) and functions (methods). As such, the study of nano-matter by nano-interaction (nano-materials and nano-methods) may truly close the dual circle of nano-science (controlling the matter of a substance, i.e. field complementarity and observability) with that of nano-technology (optimizing the matter for the structure and function). After all, the end-point of the nano-materials and methods endeavor should be to make an impact on the integral and integrated (holistic) nano-econo-ecological cycle at large, by monitoring the best (re)circulation of natural resources and their transformation for the betterment of everyday life, from the nano-sci-ground to multi-tech-users. This will promote a sustainable knowledge-based economy and society.
The main directions of the present Special Issue therefore accordingly include, but are not limited to:
Nanochemistry of Carbon-Based Systems; Physical Chemistry of Hybrid Nanostructures; Molecular Machines: Design, Synthesis, Functioning; Multiscale Models in Complex Nanochemical Systems; Nanochemistry for Bioactive Compounds; Renewable NanoSystems; Renewable Electro-Nano-Chemistry; Magnetic Nanomaterials; Spectral NanoMethods; Nanotechnovation Management; Strategic Management of R&D in the Nanotech-Based Economy.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
