Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ionic liquids (ILs) have been classified as excellent supported materials, solvents and co-solvents for their capacity to dissolve, extract, and purify different compounds in a wide range of applications. These compounds are considered tuneable materials due to their capacity to form different nanosegregated domains (polar, hydrogenated apolar and fluorinated apolar) which enhances their tuneability capacities and solvent quality. Then, the ideal material can be fine-tuned through the selection of each of the nanosegregated domains, and the contribution of each type of interaction (Coulombic, van der Waals and hydrogen bonding).

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.
