Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The carbon atom has versatile features that allow this element to combine in various solid forms, and the ability of carbon-based materials to enclose nanopores in their structure is a key factor and an asset to address important scientific challenges. Moreover, the unique properties of carbon materials such as carbon nanotubes or graphene has been demonstrating the possibility of replacing industrial processes based on heavy metals by metal-free materials.

The main objective of this Special Issue of Nanomaterials is to present relevant and recent insights on the synthesis, characterization, and application of nanoporous carbon materials. We invite authors to submit original communications, articles, or reviews on innovative synthesis routes of nanoporous carbons and also on the deeper comprehension of their properties at the nanoscale. Contributions focused on the role of the nanoporosity of carbon materials or carbon-based hybrid materials for specific applications in the fields of adsorption, catalysis, or energy production are also welcome.

We look forward to receiving your submissions.

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.
