Special Issue "Nanofluids and Nanofluidics"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2020.
Interests: Nanofluids, nanomaterials, microfluidics, nanofluidics, cooling and energy technologies, thermophysical properties and thermal transport
Both nanofluids and nanofluidics are popular research fields that have attracted huge research interest in recent years. This is mainly due to their great potential applications in many important fields ranging from energy and electronics to biomedical. While nanofluids are suspensions of any kind of solid nanoparticles in any conventional or new heat transfer liquids, nanofluidics is the study and manipulation of fluids confined within nano-sized structures or devices. It is known that the current technological trend towards being smaller and faster raises a lot of technical challenges. For instance, small and high performance devices also generate very high power (heat) densities, and conventional cooling techniques are increasingly falling short of meeting these high and fast cooling needs. Here nanofluids and nanofluidics can play a major role in overcoming such challenges (e.g., cooling) of high-tech small devices and systems. In addition to the huge potential markets, there are also numerous other technological challenges facing many other fields (like drag-delivery in biomedical) where either nanomaterials, nanofluids or nanofluidics can be a game changer in the future.
Due to this importance and the potential applications, it is timely to cover some major research and application areas of these two popular fields in this Special Issue on “Nanofluids and Nanofluidics” in Nanomaterials which is a high-impact (IF:3.504) journal in nanoscience and nanotechnology.

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.
