This Special Issue on “Frontiers in Chiral Nanomaterials” highlights innovative research from around the world focusing on harnessing the physical, chemical, and topological properties/characteristics of chiral nanomaterials and chirality in the nanometer range (~1–100 nm).
We aim for this Special Issue to cover up-to-date achievements and future perspectives in the field of chiral nanomaterials. Contributions to this Special Issue can cover all aspects of chirality and nanomaterials, including synthesis and applications of chiral nanomaterials in their different forms, namely chiral organic nanoparticles, chiral fibers, chiral nanotubes, chiral monolayers, chiral films, chiral polymers, and chiral nanoporous solids.
On the other hand, chiral nano inorganic materials, including metals, semiconductors, silica based, metal oxide, and chiral hybrid nanostructures are discussed. Special emphasis will be given to optically active quantum dots (QDs) and their potential applications, ranging from chiral sensing to asymmetric catalysis applications and to novel physicochemical characterization of chiral nanomaterials. The opportunities arising from the use of such special characteristics are tremendous and highlighted within the volume.

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 1600 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.
