Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
In recent decades, a large variety of nanostructured allotropes of carbon—i.e., nanocarbons—with singular physicochemical properties have been discovered and widely studied. Amongst some of the remarkable properties of nanocarbons, we can cite the low density of carbon aerogels and nanofoams, the outstanding electron mobility within graphene sheets, the extremely high tensile strength of carbon nanotubes, and the π-plasmon absorption of carbon quantum dots. Nanocarbons have been seen as valuable building blocks for the design of functional nanocomposites, especially in the field of energy (e.g., rechargeable batteries, supercapacitors, (bio)fuel cells, solar energy harvesting systems). This Special Issue aims to collect original articles (full papers, communications, and reviews) addressing the prosperous topic of Functional Carbon Nanocomposites for Energy Storage and Conversion.

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.
