Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanowires are versatile building blocks for fundamental studies in nanoscience, which open up many exciting opportunities to compute, encode, detect, and identify. Creating, understanding, and utilizing these nanomaterials require applying ideas and techniques from physical, chemical, biological, and engineering sciences. This Special Issue covers all aspects of semiconductor, metal nanowires, nanorods, and nanowire heterostructures as related to new developments of their synthesis, characterization, and applications. Specific interests include, but are not limited to, precise control of compositional and structural complexity in atomic and nanoscales in nanowire and nanowire heterostructures; new characterization methods and ways of understanding physical properties in nanowires, enabling new applications; and a prototype of innovative applications in new areas, including photonics and energy and biomedical applications.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
