Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In today’s world, the pace of events and information exchange is continuing to accelerate. This presents scientists, engineers, biologists and doctors with ever new challenges that require more efficient and improved methods of analysis, synthesis, and their translation into practice and technology. The breakthrough developments that are made are underpinned to a great extent by the new smart materials designed according to the bottom–up principles, i.e., from the atomic to nanoscale and further. Over the past decade, nanomaterials have been the subject of enormous interest. These materials, notable for their extremely small feature size, have the potential for wide-ranging industrial, biomedical, and electronic applications. As a result of a recent improvement in technologies to see and manipulate these materials, the nanomaterials field has seen a huge increase in funding from private enterprises and governments, and academic researchers within the field have formed many partnerships.

This Special Issue is the product of the collaboration of the Nanomaterials journal with the 5th International Conference on Materials Science and Nanomaterials (ICMSN 2021) to be held in London, United Kingdom, on July 13–15, 2021. The objective of the ICMSN 2021 is to support the sharing of the latest research results between scientists in the relevant fields.

This Special Issue will review modern approaches to the synthesis, characterisation, modelling, and the use of materials based on the presentations made at the conference, as well as other relevant contributions.

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.
