Special Issue "Synthesis, Development and Characterization of Magnetic Nanomaterials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 March 2021.
Interests: magnetic colloidal particles; liquid phase synthesis; L10 chemical ordering; FePt; CoPt; Fe3O4; nanomagnetism; biomedical applications of magnetic nanoparticles; catalysis
Since the early thirties, when it was predicted that a particle of ferromagnetic material with a size below a critical limit would possess a single magnetic domain within which magnetic moments of free electrons are aligned parallel, there has been a continuously increasing interest in the scientific community in the development and study of magnetic materials in the nanoscale size regime. This enormous interest is mainly due to their prospective applications in many technological areas, including magnetic storage devices, ferrofluids, magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic carriers, magnetic hyperthermia, energy, and catalysis.
In addition to their wide range of applications, magnetic nanomaterials have attracted an outstanding amount of scientific interest due to the their size, shape, and structural dependent properties. They can be synthesized with many different chemical and physical methodologies in a large variety of shapes and morphologies, such as dots, wires, cubes, hollow, core/shell, sheets, and many others.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will cover the most recent advances in synthesis, characterization, and niche applications, of magnetic nanomaterials from permanent magnets to biomedicine, and from environmental remediation to sensors and catalysis. Research articles including review articles and short communications must have originality and promote knowledge in the scope of the Special Issue.

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.
