Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanocellulose is opening new horizons as a source of renewable nanostructures thanks to its wide availability and sustainability in myriad applications. The main scope of this special issue is to compile the most recent research on cutting-edge developments and uses of nanocellulose. The contribution will particularly focus on current scientific and technological progress in the production, characterization, and applications, including lab-scale studies and new developments in pilot and full industrial-scale applications. The special issue will contribute to the accelerating R&D and industrialization of nanocellulose. Researchers from universities, public/private R&D institutes, and industry, are invited to send their contributions.

Contributions to these areas are welcome:

  • New and state-of-the-art methods for characterization
  • Production methods
  • Improving the performance of nanocellulosic materials
  • Advances on the Use and Applications of nanocellulosic materials
  • Emerging fields on nanocellulosic materials
  • Other related topics

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 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 2600 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.
