Special Issue in Materials: Advanced Synchrotron Techniques for Soft and Nanomaterials
Advanced nanomaterials and modern nanotechnology, in general, play an increasingly important role in solving societal challenges such as the transition to the circular economy, the development of novel computational technologies, in our understanding of molecular biology, and in the advance of (nano)medicine. The Special Issue “Feature papers in Advanced Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology” will collect high-quality original research papers and comprehensive reviews on recent advances in the synthesis, characterization, and application of novel advanced nanomaterials. Potentially interesting topics that are highly welcome include the following:
- Dissipative self-assembly and active nanomaterials
- Chiral nanomaterials
- Quantum materials
- Nanotechnology for catalysis
- Nanotechnology in photonics
- 1D and 2D nanomaterials
- Novel liquid crystals and liquid crystal composites
- Responsive and tuneable nanomaterials
- Nanosensors and nanoactuators
- Nanomaterials and environment
- Emerging nanotechnologies
Manuscripts submitted to this Special Issue will be subjected to more stringent selection criteria to ensure the privileged position of accepted contributions. Those that fail to pass this selection will be considered for publication in Materials as regular contributions.

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.
