Interests: photocatalysts; semiconductor oxides; noble metal nanoparticles; carbon-based nanomaterials; nanocomposites; structural and morphological investigations; surface analyses
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Interests: biomaterials; tissue engineering; bioactive glasses; biopolymers
There has recently been a particular interest in performing research on various types of nanostructures with dimensions of tens of nanometers. In this respect, this Special Issue aims to cover recent progress and trends in both fundamental and applied research on various types of nanostructured materials. Contributions to this Special Issue can be in the form of full research articles, short communications, and reviews that focus on the understanding of the role and the influence of molecules used for obtaining nanostructured materials as well as the processes and phenomena that occur when homogeneous or heterogeneous nanostructured materials are involved. On the other hand, an important aspect of the performed research could be directed towards the rigorous assessment of the phenomena that appear during the materials’ synthesis. Furthermore, there is a special interest in publishing research that presents the applications of materials in various interesting areas such as bio-medicine, drug delivery, (photo)catalysis, sensors, supercapacitors, batteries, fire retardants, etc., by pointing out the role and influence of the molecules and compounds involved during the preparation routes on the improvements of the materials’ performances.
Submissions are welcome relating but not limited to the broad topics listed below:
- Electronic, photonic, and magnetic materials;
- Materials for energy and environmental;
- Advanced materials characterization and modelling;
- Nanomaterials and characterization;
- Biomaterials and soft materials;
- Structural and (multi)functional materials;
- Surfaces and interfaces in nano-structures and nano-architectures.

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 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.
