Special Issue "Magnetic Fluids"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Magnetic fluids have been at the focus of rigorous scientific studies for over half a century. Being complex systems with a set of unique physical properties controlled by a magnetic field, they attract the attention of researchers both from a fundamental and applied point of view. Recent trends in magnetic fluid research include interdisciplinary studies at the edge between biotechnology, medical applications, engineering and fundamental physics. At present, increasing attention is being paid to hybrid systems in which simple Newtonian carrier liquids are replaced by polymers, including biological media, liquid crystals, etc. Simple single-domain magnetic nanoparticles serving as the dispersed phase in classical magnetic fluids are replaced by complex clusters coated with various surfactants. Multidisperse mixtures of nano- and microparticles are also used. All this allows obtaining magnetic composites with advanced properties. New trends require novel approaches in theoretical and experimental studies of magnetic fluids. For this Special Issue, we would like to welcome original research manuscripts as well as methodological and review articles on the magnetic fluids on such topics as advances in synthesis, theoretical approaches, medical and biological applications, microstructural effects, rheology and magnetization, heat and mass transfer, and technical applications. This list is not restrictive, and studies on related topics are also 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 2000 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.
