Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanotechnology, as a powerful physics, chemistry, biomedical field, similarly to quantum tunneling effects, ballistic electron transport, or greater molecule interactions, works at the atomic scale. One of the greatest breakthroughs of nanotechnology is due to carbon nanomaterials such as nanotubes, nanofibers, and diamond nanomaterials, which provide electronic devices with a unique combination of excellent properties.

The titled Special Issue plans to cover up-to-date studies on carbon materials focused on their electronic applications achievable by the ‘properties-by-design’ method. Innovative strategies of controllable synthesis and innovative isolation/purification methods accompanied by widespread characterization toward applications have created an innovative science which is the focus of this Special Issue. New openings or the most recent advances in the applications of carbon nanomaterials are of interest in this Special Issue, including:

  • Carbon materials characterization;
  • Nanotechnology in material sciences and engineering;
  • Carbon materials processing and manufacturing;
  • Biomaterials;
  • Optical, electrical, and magnetic materials.

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.
