Multifunctional nanomaterials have become an increasingly popular field of research over the past few decades due to the significant changes in physical and/or chemical properties that occur at this small scale. Specifically, it has been seen that interesting modifications take place in magnetic, electronic, optical, and catalytic properties, among others, with respect to materials of larger dimensions. Accordingly, nanomaterials are used in a variety of applications, including catalysis, gas storage, spin crossover, sensors, magnetics, optics, and drug delivery.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will present recent innovative scientific works, collected from both academia and industry, that describe the state of the art of nanomaterials with multifunctional properties. Moreover, it is expected to present an overview of different methods used for the preparation and characterization of nanomaterials for potential applications.
The readers will find relevant information regarding some of the following topics:
- Synthesis of multifunctional nanomaterials;
- Organic/inorganic multifunctional nanocomposites;
- New characterization techniques for functional nanomaterials;
- Theoretical studies and modeling;
- Nanocomposites and their applications;
- Stimuli-responsive nanosystems;
Finally, we would like to invite you to submit your manuscript to this Special Issue by sending a communication or a full paper from your group or a review article on some of these topics. We are looking forward to receiving your 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.
