Special Issue "Frontiers in Nanostructure Stability: Nanocrystalline Materials"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 December 2019.
Materials that are produced within the nanometer range have been found to possess novel mechanical, chemical, thermal and electrical properties compared to materials prepared on a micron scale. Therefore, by controlling the nanostructure of materials, better properties can be engineered. For instance, ceramic and polymer materials can incorporate carbon nanotubes, which can provide unique electrical and thermal properties. The use of nanoparticles in composites can enhance strength, chemical and thermal resistance, yet reduce weight. The development of nanostructured coatings containing hard ceramic nanoparticles can produce tough and wear-resistant surfaces or change colour when a current is applied or have self-cleaning and antifouling properties. Nanotechnology can be regarded as a key technology which can lead to the development of nanodevices and systems that offer improved properties. Therefore, developments in nanostructured materials not only influence advances in technology, but has economic and social implications.

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.
