Special Issue in Nanomaterials: 30th Year Anniversary of Carbon Nanotube Discovery - Focus on Real World Solutions
Nanocomposites can be viewed as abundant interface nanoscale systems having the ability to manipulate length scales that are fundamentally important to many physical properties. This can sometimes impart multiple functions, which has led to a rapidly expanding scope and arena of application for these materials. It is known that the function of nanoparticles in a matrix is dependent on nanoparticle–matrix interactions, amongst other factors. This is with regard to any material property of the nanocomposites, be it related to crystallographic and/or electronic structure. This Special Issue will highlight the nanoscale science and technology in the structure, processing, property, characterization, and modeling aspects of advanced composite materials, including nanoparticle- and/or nanofiber-based materials. Contributions are solicited in, but not limited to advanced composites for mechanical, thermal, energetic/catalytic, optical, magnetic, electronic, and biological applications. Submissions that focus on advanced composites for multi-functional or green-energy applications are especially welcome.

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.
