Interests: molecular and electronic structure of nanostructured materials, carried out by state-of-the-art Synchrotron Radiation (SR)-induced techniques such as X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (SR-XPS), X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) and Near Edge X-ray Absorption Fine Structure spectroscopy (NEXAFS), as well as conventional XPS, UV-visible absorption and emission and FT-IR spectroscopies; organic molecules and π-conjugated organometallic oligomers; biocompatible materials
Nanostructured materials exploit physical phenomena and mechanisms that cannot be derived by simply scaling down the associated bulk structures and phenomena; furthermore, new quantum effects come into play in nanosystems. The exploitation of these emerging nanoscale interactions prompts the innovative design of nanomaterials.
Understanding the behavior of materials on all length scales, from the nanostructure up to the macroscopic response, is a critical challenge for materials science. Modern analytical technologies based on Synchrotron Radiation (SR) allow the non-destructive investigation of the chemical, electronic, and magnetic structure of materials in any environment. SR facilities have developed revolutionary new ideas and experimental set-ups to characterize nanomaterials, involving spectroscopy, diffraction, scatterings, microscopy, tomography, and all kinds of highly sophisticated combinations of such investigation techniques.
This Special Issue seeks to cover all aspects of Synchrotron Radiation applied to the investigation of chemical, electronic, and magnetic structure of nanostructured materials.

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.
