Special Issue in Inorganics: Mixed Metal Oxides II
Developments in materials science, combining physics, chemistry, theory and even biosciences, have brought us to another level of understanding of properties of mixed-metal oxides. The area of application of mixed-metal oxides concerns all aspects of human life, ranging from novel building materials to medicine. The development of novel materials is a fundamental focal point of chemical research; and this interest is mandated by advancements in all areas of industry and technology. Many synthesis methods used for the fabrication of different multinary oxide systems require extensive procedures, elevated temperatures and lengthy treatments. These processing conditions do not allow facile control over micro-structure, grain size and grain size distribution in the resulting powders or shapes. Owing to such wide and diverse application potentials of mixed-metal oxides, chemical routes for the preparation of pure and/or homogeneously doped different systems are highly desirable.
The scope of this Special Issue of Inorganics is focused on the synthesis, characterization and application of mixed-metal oxides and related materials, which are important in biomedicine, optoelectronics, catalysis, conservation and restoration of cultural heritage, and related industrial areas. The field of the research in application of soft chemistry approaches in the synthesis of various advanced multifunctional materials, bulk and thin films, are very much appreciated.Prof. Dr. Aivaras Kareiva
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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Inorganics 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 2700 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.
