Special Issue "Advances in Luminescent Engineered Nanomaterials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2020.
Interests: luminescence; engineered nanomaterials; carbon dots; chemiluminescence; bioluminescence; photodynamic therapy; sensor development; photochemistry; computational chemistry; catalysis; green chemistry
Engineered nanomaterials are defined as purposely developed manufactured materials, which can be either organic, inorganic or organometallic in nature. Engineered nanomaterials have dimensions at the nanoscale and possess properties that are different than bulk materials with the same composition. Such nano-based materials have attracted significant attention due to their improved performance, such as emission of light via either down-conversion or up-conversion luminescent pathways, when excited by UV, visible or infrared light.
It is my pleasure to invite you all to submit research articles, review papers and short communications focused on: fabrication of and development of synthesis strategies for luminescent engineered nanomaterials; characterization of new such nano-based materials; development of new applications for the abovementioned nanomaterials, as well as optimization of existing ones. Such applications include (but are not limited to): luminescent sensing (of ions, small-molecules, biomolecules, temperature, and pH, among others), application for light-emitting devices, bioimaging, light-based therapies and theranostics, photocatalysis, and photovoltaics.

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.
