Esteemed colleagues, you are invited to contribute to the Special issue “Doping in Systems Derived by Chemical or Physical Deposition Techniques for Environmental and Energy Application”. This special issue welcomes novel manuscripts dealing with previously unpublished advances in the following areas:
1. Functionality—applicability for solar cells, catalysis, sensors, sorbents, pigments, etc. based on enhancing of charge transfer efficiency, mobility, recombination hindering, etc.
2. Synthesis—slight modifications of the compositions by means of substitutional, interstitial, or surface defect-based doping, including precursors and post-processing.
3. Deposition—control of doping in films deposited using chemical methods (self-assembly, chelation, sol-gel, solvothermal, coatings, castings, etc.) and physical methods (ablation, sputtering, evaporation, atomic, vapor, etc.).
4. Compatibility—interfacing issues (surface compatibility, boundary conditions) in the area of composites based on doped materials.
5. Characterization—techniques monitoring (micro)structural, optoelectronic, mechanochemical, catalytic, thermodynamic, and other material’s repercussions that may be modified as a consequence of the doping.
6. Design—novel systems in terms of modeling compositions, compounds, morphologies, etc. and novel in-situ or in-operando experiments for multi-technique monitoring of reaction kinetics, stability, aging, etc. all as a consequence of the doping.

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.
