Special Issue "Carbon-Based Nanocoatings"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 November 2020.
Interests: synthesis and application of nanostructures, nanomaterials and nanocomposites for sensing and coatings; broadband characterization; nanomaterials for energy storage and renewable energy production
Currently, nanomaterials and nanotechnologies are innovating many aspects of our daily life. The size reduction of materials gives them unique properties that allow groundbreaking results to be obtained in several application fields. In particular, nanomaterials have provided an important contribution in human life—for example, in chemical or image sensors, electromagnetic coatings and sensors, electronic and transport applications, renewable energy production, and so on. Among nanomaterials, carbon nanocoatings and related nanostructures are important and are extensively studied.
This Special Issue aims to collect manuscripts dealing with the use and properties of carbon-based nanocoatings (e.g., graphene, graphene oxide, MXene) alone or in combination with other nanomaterials (metallic or semiconductor nanoparticles or nanocoatings) or even as a part of polymeric nanocomposites, focused on nanocoatings, thin films, surfaces, and interfaces. Subjects that fall into the scope of this Special Issue include the preparation of carbon-based nanocoatings; functionalization methodologies of carbon nanocoatings; the preparation of carbon-composite-based nanocoatings; electrical and structural characterization; physicochemical interaction with molecules or biomarkers; optical properties of nanocoatings; and nanocoatings for energy storage and renewable energy production.
Manuscripts can be submitted in the following formats: full research papers, communications, and reviews.

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.
