The Special Issue “Synthesis and Properties of Nano-Based Composites” is aimed at the preparation and characterization of high-performance composites containing different nano-additives. Nowadays, the study of various 0D, 1D, or 2D materials is in the forefront of world-wide research; however, the use of these materials in the final products is often problematic, not only because of the high prices of nanomaterials, but also because of their inconsiderable impact on the environment. On the other hand, the use of these materials in composites is reasonable, because usually, only a low content of nanomaterials can strongly influence the material properties.
This Special Issue will include composites containing 1D nanomaterials (CNTs), 2D layered nanomaterials (graphene, graphene oxides, etc.), nanostructured oxides, and others nanomaterials. Hence, proposed topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Graphene-based composites
- Graphene oxide-based composites
- CNT-based composites
- Cement-based materials with nano-additives
- High-temperature superconductors with nanoscale pinning centers
- Nano-based thermoelectrics
- Carbon-bonded alumina refractories with various nano-additives
- New trends in nano-based composites
- Environmental aspects of nano-based composites
- Construction materials with nano-additives
- Hygrothermal performance and durability of nano-based composites
- Application of nano-materials in the repair of culture heritage buildings and structures.
We believe that this topic is very real and interesting, and hence, we invite you to submit your contributions to this Special Issue with the best of your research activities.

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 1800 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.
