I would like to invite you to consider submitting a paper to this Special Issue in the field of hybrid nanomaterials. In this context, it is crucial to explain that hybrid nanomaterials may be considered in some degree of probability, like composite materials possessing separately different chemical or physical properties, but within the composite synergistically interacting with each other and raising the functionality of final material. For the case of the nanocomposite, the constituent materials should have distinctive phases, and the dimension of at least one of them should be less than 100 nanometers. Sometimes, the structure of nanocomposite has nanoscale repeat distances between the different phases that make up the material. One example of nanocomposite can be host–guest systems, e.g., silica, titanium dioxide, or zinc oxide as ideal matrices. Such nanocomposites are widely used in electronics, energy storage, sensing, catalysis or even possess antimicrobial features. Each of them has promising properties suitable for research in high-quality original articles and might have a potential for application in the industry.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Synthesis of nanocomposite materials;
- Functional materials;
- Ordered porous functional thin films;
- Methods of thin films functionalization;
- Multifunctional and intelligent materials based on silica matrices;
- Characterization methods of silica-based nanocomposites;
- Porous nanocomposites;

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.
