Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Colloidal suspensions of magnetic nanoparticles, more commonly known as ferrofluids, have gained much notoriety in recent years due to their myriad applications, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast enhancement, magnetic cooling, magnetic damping, magnetic filtration, and magnetic fluid hyperthermia. In this Special Issue, we bring together a collection of works highlighting novel synthesis methodologies, innovative techniques for producing colloidal suspensions of magnetic nanoparticles, new materials, and unique applications of ferrofluids. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
