Nanoporous materials have attracted considerable attention for various applications, such as catalysts, energy storages, sensors, bioapplications, environmentally-related application, etc., due to the high surface area, functions, easy hybridization ability with other materials. In general, the nanoporous structure can be made by bottom-up or top-down approaches through the integratin of fields of material science, chemistry, nanotechnology, etc. Recently, nanoporous structures are being applied to polymers, metals, metal oxides, and carbons to improve their properties in applications. Therefore, synthesis and characterization of nanoporous materials are very important. This Special Issue explores scientific advances of nanoporous functional materials in diverse applications and includes research articles focusing on experimental studies, as well prospective discussing practical applications.

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 1600 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.
