We are celebrating the 10th anniversary of Nanomaterials (IF = 4.034) with a Special Issue in the Section “Synthesis, Interfaces and Nanostructures” (ISSN 2079-4991; CODEN: NANOKO) in 2020.
On behalf of the Editor in Chief, Prof. Dr. Shirley Chiang, the members of the Editorial Office, and ourselves, we would like to take this opportunity to thank the authors and reviewers for their valuable contributions and for ensuring that Nanomaterials is a successful and respected journal in its field. To highlight this anniversary, we will be serving as Editors of a Special Issue that will cover various topics related to Synthesis, Interfaces and Nanostructures.
We will consider manuscripts dealing with the chemistry of interfaces, reporting on phenomena such as adsorption, reactions, films, forces, measurement techniques, charge transfer, electrochemistry, electrocatalysis, energy production, and storage, as well as discussing systems presenting interfacial regions (including nanoparticles, colloids, emulsions, surfactants, proteins, and polymers). Contributions dealing with nanostructures (organic, inorganic, and hybrid) are expected to focus not only on the synthesis and fabrication of nanostructures but also on their properties and applications, such as catalysis. This is an aspect that represents the forefront of the research in nanomaterials these days. Papers concerning the fundamentals and processing techniques on the synthesis, characterization, properties, and applications of nanostructures belong in this Section. Theoretical and computational manuscripts dealing with interfacial phenomena as well as nanostructures are welcome.
We intend to keep the scope of this Special Issue rather broad to adequately represent the diversity and inclusiveness of the original research covered by Nanomaterials (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials).
On behalf of the Nanomaterials team and ourselves, we warmly invite the nanomaterials community to submit their original work or an up-to-date review to this Special Issue, which will provide the readership with a comprehensive overview of many of the topics covered by this discipline.
The 10th anniversary is an important occasion. To honor it in the best way, we will do our best to select excellent contributions to increase the visibility of the journal and its reputation among the scientific community.

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. Nanomaterials 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 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.
