Special Issue "Rheological Properties of Nanomaterials"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 December 2020.
Interests: rheology; rheometry; constitutive modelling; electrospinning; polymer melts and solutions
Rheology plays a crucial role in characterizing nanomaterials or in evaluation whether the source materials are suitable for production of nanomaterials. As an example it is possible to mention that absence of elastic component in polymer solution usually causes impossibility of production of electrospun nanofibrous mats. At present, nanomaterials are produced for concrete applications: biomedical (face masks, tissue engineering, drug delivery, etc.), high energy density batteries, various industrial applications. In all these branches the nanomaterials are supposed to acquire specific attributes, in other words to be tailor-made with the corresponding properties. One of the means used for this characterization is represented by rheology, by means of which an adequate tuning of material characteristics is possible. The smart (intelligent) materials can be evaluated by magneto- or electro-rheological procedures.
This Special Issue of “Rheological Properties of Nanomaterials” will attempt to cover the recent advancements in the development of nanomaterials from the viewpoint of a rheological approach simultaneously respecting other process parameters.Prof. Dr. Petr Filip
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.
