Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is devoted to recent advances in nanostructure studies and applications that have been developed in various fields of science and industry. Nanomaterials are already used in electronics, medicine, biology, sensors, catalysis, and spectroscopy. They are used in the form of nanocrystals, nanoceramics, glasses, colloids, composites, or thin films. These materials, due to the extraordinary properties obtained at the nanoscale, show unusual physical properties—different from those at the macroscale. Many of us study the chemical, biological, and physical properties of these nanomaterials. We see their unusual spectroscopic, magnetic, antimicrobial, or chemical properties. We try to understand the interaction between the size, morphology, and surface of nanomaterials with their properties. We try to modulate them to be able to use these materials in various applications. Thanks to this, nanotechnology is still a field undergoing intensive development in which you are an expert. Therefore, for the upcoming issue, I would like to ask you to present your latest studies on different types of nanostructures and their applications.

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.
