Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the last few decades, the carbon nanomaterials scientific community has been growing quickly due to the successive discoveries and developments which have shifted the focus from fullerenes to, first, the carbon nanotubes age, then to graphene and graphene-like materials, afterwards diamond-like xerogels and doped carbon materials and on to the next carbon revolution. This has provide an avalanche of exciting scientific works affording basic knowledge about nanocarbon porosity and carbon layer dimensional measurement,  graphitic planes constitution and modification, and angle-layer overlapping. These developments have opened a huge space in the characterization of materials, thereby facilitating the next step in the evolution of the field: the application and development of businesses taking advantage of the electronic, mechanical, energy storage, and thermal properties in fields as diverse as medicine, super capacitators, water treatment, composite, or metallurgy industries.

This Special Issue will focus on research papers on the application of some of these carbon nanomaterials (pure, composite, hybrid materials either doped or surface) tailored with the aim of showing evidence of the higher chemical, mechanical, electrical, magnetic, and thermal properties that rise to the challenges posed by the next catalytic industrial revolution supported by the nanostructural nature.

We invite you to contribute full papers, reviews, or communications to this Special Issue. In all cases, the papers must demonstrate novelty and relevance to the scope.

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.
