Special Issue "Investigation of Inorganic Nanomaterials: Synthesis, Structures and Properties"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 November 2021.
Physical properties in nanoscale systems can differ from the respective bulk phase and even lead to novel properties. Therefore, recent efforts have mainly focused on the synthesis of very small/thin structures. Lately, materials with 2-dimensional layer structures beyond graphene have moved into the focus of research. Often, top–down approaches are applied for downscaling the particle dimensions. Commonly used in 2D materials, exfoliation processes break weak structural interactions, thus leading to particles and thin sheets, even down to monolayer dimensions.
Novel synthesis concepts shall address bottom–up approaches in order to precipitate pure nanocrystallites and to avoid defects occurring from mechanical stress during delamination. Completion of these concepts by rational synthesis planning additionally gives more knowledge and efficiency in materials synthesis. Further characterization methods are convenient for proof of chemical composition, crystallinity and structure, morphology, as well as physical properties on nanoscale dimension.

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.
