Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the last decade, there has been renewed interest in single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) and their potential applications. This is largely due to the advent of techniques that facilitate the isolation of highly-pure and/or individualized SWNT materials, including density-gradient ultracentrifugation, conjugated polymer wrapping, aqueous two-phase extraction, and electrophoresis. The ability to generate significant amounts of individualized chiralities has resulted in the production of exciting nanomaterials and composites and the prospect of a plethora of emerging applications such as electronics, sensors, ultratough composites and more. We invite you to submit new research on the development of SWNT-based systems and their applications, with particular focus on the synthesis, self-assembly, materials characterization, and integration of SWNTs. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

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.
