Special Issue Information
Recently, smart nanoparticles have received a great deal of attention among researchers and academicians due to their unique physical properties and wide applications, including drug delivery, biomimetic devices, contrast agents in magnetic resonance imaging, hyperthermia, cell manipulation, security systems, information storage devices, quantum computing, magnetic sensors and actuators, energy harvesting, catalysis and magnetic separation, spintronic-based devices, electronic devices, lasers, Li-ion batteries, solar cells, bio-imaging, thermal therapy, etc. Prompt technological improvement and miniaturization require immediate developments in materials science to achieve increased performance demands. Polymer nanocomposites have received a great deal of attention regarding the design of a new generation of high-performance composite materials based on smart nanoparticles due to their extraordinarily high synergetic and complementary characteristics between two or more component materials. The characteristics of polymer nanocomposites can be modified by selectively introducing smart nanoparticles with unique physical properties for the desired application. Additionally, the reduced size of smart nanoparticles increases the aspect ratio, which can play a fundamental role in enhancing the interfacial properties in the overall performance of innovative polymer nanocomposite materials for emerging technology.
We invite authors to contribute original research articles or comprehensive review articles covering the most recent progress and new developments in the synthesis of smart nanoparticles; the preparation of polymer nanocomposites; the characterization and application of smart nanoparticles; the physical properties of polymer nanocomposites; and the utilization of smart nanoparticles in the design of advanced polymer nanocomposites for emerging technologies including biomedical, optoelectronics, sensing, diagnostics, food packaging, organic photovoltaics, bioelectronics, electronics, energy storage, automobiles, aerospace engineering, biomedicine, supercapacitors, batteries, water and air purification, microwave absorbers, etc.
This Special Issue aims to cover a broad range of subjects, from smart nanoparticles and polymer nanocomposite synthesis and the study of their fundamental properties to the fabrication and characterization of devices and emerging technologies with smart nanoparticles and polymer integration.
Manuscripts can be submitted in the following formats: full research papers, communications, and reviews.
