Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Many of us have, in some way, discovered the unique properties of nano-featured materials, i.e., materials consisting of nano-size particles or larger particles with nano-size pores, which exhibit unique physical and chemical properties (structure, morphology, texture, etc.). Nano-featured materials are relevant for the universe of adsorption/ion exchange and catalytic applications. In addition to these areas, the fabrication/modification of nano-structured surfaces finds strong potential in diverse fields, from electronic and energy to biomedical, where sensors, light harvesting, tissue engineering, imaging, and drug delivery systems are only a few examples. 

This Special Issue covers all aspects of “Catalytic and Adsorption Applications of Nano-Featured Materials”. We kindly invite you to share your experience and knowledge on these topics by submitting an original or review article or feature article to this Special Issue. We are grateful to you for reading and considering this possibility.

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.
