Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Atomistic control in Nanomaterial synthesis represents the ultimate paradigm for nanotechnology and offers transformative opportunities for several technologies. However, in nanomaterials the structure of the material dictates functionality and scalability is typically achieved at the expense of atomic precision. Hence, maintaining atomic precision and process fidelity during scalable synthesis to realize practical applications remains challenging. This special issue will focus on innovations in top-down as well as bottom-up approaches that allow for atomistic control during scalable synthesis and processing of nanomaterials for electronics, photonics, optoelectronics, energy, environmental, colloidal crystal growth, separations, biological applications among others.

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 2200 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.
