Special Issue "ZnO Based Nanostructures: Synthesis, Characterization and Applications"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2020.
Interests: Metal oxide nanostructrures, metal oxide nanocomposites, optical sensors and biosensors, photocatalysis
The ‘ZnO Based Nanostructures: Synthesis, Characterization and Applications’ is an important and actual subject, that includes a variety of a number specialized research interests from nanomaterials, physical chemistry and functional surfaces. This special issue intends to collect the recent achievements in experimental and theoretical studies on ZnO. Papers, focused on new methods of synthesis of ZnO and ZnO-based composite materials, forming of ZnO functional surfaces, applications of ZnO nanomaterials in sensors, biosensors, photocatalysis, electrochemical applications, biomedical applications and theoretical calculations of zinc oxide surface properties are welcome. Safety of ZnO nanostructures also can be a point of interest. The Special Issue is issued to the main natural science fields. The Special Issue will encourage interdisciplinary studies on intersection of physics, chemistry, microbiology and medicine.

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.
