Ceramic materials are one of the oldest manmade materials known to be used in varieties of life applications. Traditional applications in the houseware, electroindustry, construction and building industry, or sanitary and medical fields are slowly being overtaken by new approaches to the preparation and design of ceramics using nanotechnology. Advanced and multifunctional materials are being researched and developed to suit modern demands in a broad spectrum of applications.
For this Special Issue, we want to focus on ceramics with all aspects of nanotechnology to this topic. Therefore, the following will be addressed:
- Synthesis of ceramics using nanotechnology approaches;
- Nanoceramics and ceramic nanocomposites;
- Modified ceramics with nanoparticles;
- Biocompatible ceramics and bioceramics;
- Ceramics microstructure and porosity;
- Ceramics for the environment;
- Nano-micro fillers for ceramics;
- Characterization of ceramics.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

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.
