The nanotechnology revolution ignited in-depth exploration of nanomaterials’ synthesis, characterization and potential applications. Among the leading semiconductor nanomaterials for the development of nanostructures and devices, Zinc Oxide (ZnO) has brought a tremendous impact to the electronics industry due to its multifaceted characteristics. This Special Issue is aimed at harvesting some of the recent and novel aspects of ZnO nanorods synthesis and applications. The motivation for this special issue stems from the recent applications of ZnO in several electronic devices such as transistors and transducers, energy harvesting devices and recent applications in structural composites as embedded structural health monitoring devices. While the research focusing on ZnO goes back several decades, the renewed interest is fueled by the novel synthesis techniques of Zno nanostructures and the tailorability of their microstructures and their emerging applications beyond the electronics sector. The Special Issue is envisioned to serve as a reference for students, researchers or other relevant personnel to promote the development of further research on this rather intriguing nanomaterial.

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.
