Hybrid materials and their nanostructured composites are emerging as some of the most advanced next generation systems for applications in numerous research fields, such as optics, electronics, mechanics, medicine, energy and environment.
By combining unique properties of the individual constituents, hybrid nanostructures consisting of two or more components with distinct functionality, may exhibit tailored performance for the specific application. Thanks to various effective synthesis methods, a wide range of hybrid nanostructures may be fabricated and constructed in order to produce enhanced or novel properties.
For this Special Issue, we are especially interested in manuscripts that report the synthesis, characterization and possible applications of different kinds of hybrid nanomaterials, including oxide, polymer, ceramics, and metal-based systems. This Special Issue invites both experimental and computational-based manuscripts. Special emphasis is laid on the tailoring of the interfacial features of the composite for the final application.
Application can include the following topics (but are not limited to):
- energy storage and conversion;
- electronics and optoelectronics;
- multi-phobic/self-cleaning devices;
- functional coatings;
- lithography and patterning;
- drug delivery and diagnostics;
- sensors and actuators.

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.
