Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Nanostructured materials have been attracting a great deal of attention in chemical industries due to their fascinating features, which originate from the nano effect. The development of nanotechnology in recent decades has enabled the design and systematic synthesis of various nanostructured materials, which have afforded new opportunities in many applications, including catalysis, electronics, optics, mechanics, the environment, energies, automobiles, and even healthcare. Nanostructured materials outperform their classical bulk-structured competitors by virtue of their unique chemical, physical, electrical, and mechanical characteristics, and their outstanding tunability. The catalytic opportunities for nanostructured materials are the focus of this Special Issue, which aims to cover the design of various nanostructured materials, such as metal nanoparticles, nanoporous crystals (i.e., metal oxides, zeolites, and metal–organic frameworks), and nanoporous carbons, for application in heterogeneous catalysis to control chemical reactions. We welcome the submission of communications, original research papers, and reviews on the following, or related, topics:
- developments in the design and synthesis of nanostructured catalytic materials;
- control of the size, shape, and components of metal nanoparticles for catalytic applications;
- synthesis of crystalline nanoporous materials;
- nanostructured materials for heterogeneous catalysis, including thermochemical, electrochemical, and photochemical reactions; and
- theoretical studies on the design of nanostructured materials and prediction of their abilities.

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 2200 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.
