Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to contribute to the Special Issue “Metal Oxide Semiconductors: Synthesis, Structure, and Applications”. Oxides find applications in many areas of technological relevance. This stems from their abundance and their many beneficial properties (structural, electronic, magnetic, etc.) which make them potential candidates for many applications.

This Special Issue is dedicated to recent developments in the synthesis of oxidic materials, their relationship with synthesis routes, their structure (e.g., at the electronic level), and their performance in operando. This Special issue aims to report on efficient characterization techniques, both at theoretical and experimental levels, of different class of oxides, including bulk and material systems with low dimensions (2D, 1D, and 0D), that allow a rational design of, and provide fundamental insights into, key properties governing their performance in operando.

In this Special Issue, original research articles, communications, and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: surface science, heterogeneous catalysis, energy conversion, electronics, optoelectronics, spintronics, corrosion, environmental science, and tribology.

I look forward to receiving your contributions.

Dr. Stephane Kenmoe
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. 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 2600 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.
