Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the last few years, the study of fluorescent nanomaterials has become a distinctive subject of research. This increase in interest is driven by the numerous applications of these materials in industry, medicine, information technology, energy storage, sensing, and many others. Compared to traditional fluorescent molecules, fluorescent nanomaterials display many advantages, such as photostability, tunable morphology and size, as well as the ability to perform multiple functions. Many kinds of fluorescent nanomaterials are currently available, including diamond, metal-oxides, polymer, silica carbide, carbon, just to mention some. They are fabricated in many different shapes and sizes, and have a wide range of properties suitable for many different applications, ranging from quantum to biomedical applications. However, despite significant progress, obstacles remain in their successful implementation as industrial and clinical solutions. The full potential of these nanomaterials is yet to be employed for applications.

The overarching goal of this Special Issue is to tackle all recent advances in the development, characterization, and translational applications of fluorescent nanomaterials to real-life applications. The interdisciplinary aspect of this Issue is open to all aspects of fluorescent nanomaterials-related research, and it welcomes full-size articles, short 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.
