Nowadays, the environmental challenge of reducing the climate impact requires new technological solutions in the energy sector. Nanotechnology, including nanofluids (colloidal suspensions with nanoparticles lower than 100nm in base fluids as water, oils, glycols, molten salts, etc.) can be an interesting alternative to achieve this challenge by making more efficient different applications, such as heat transfer and heat storage. This Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims at gathering original works and reviews about the recent advances on linking fundamental research of nanofluids with their applications for heat transfer and storage.
Papers dealing with experimental characterization, theoretical modelling, or numerical simulations of nanomaterials and nanofluids (nanoparticles, nanoPCM, nanosalts, ionanofluids, etc.) with improvements for heat transfer or storage applications will be considered for publication in this Special Issue. All types of papers, including short communications, full papers, and reviews, are very welcome.
We hope this Special Issue promotes a step forward in the research of nanomaterials, toward their potential use and implementation to enhance performance in energy applications systems.

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.
