Special Issue in Nanomaterials: Novel RE-free Nanocomposite Magnets
Magnetic nanomaterials and nanoscale systems represent some of the most widely researched topics over recent decades. Recent breakthroughs in high-resolution imaging techniques, modern computing, and nanoelectronics have favoured an increase in interest in the quest for new materials and novel applications. Tailor-made nanoclusters and surface functionalized nanoparticles, multilayered thin films, as well as nanocomposite magnetic materials are widely researched and expected results will be of benefit to the future digitalized economy. In the search for new magnets, although computer modelling may provide hints for finding structures that minimize the internal energy, the control of nanoscale phenomena in real time remains an unsolved issue. Magnetic nanoparticles deserve special attention because of their extended applicability not only for data storage and nanoscale spintronics applications but also for healthcare. Medical researchers are actively seeking to develop improved tools for hyperthermia therapy or drug delivery.
This Special Issue is trying to gather a carefully selected compilation of original research papers to aid our understanding of and gain insights into magnetic properties, tailored magnetic materials, and surface functionalized nanoparticles. This issue also calls for papers addressing fundamental approaches to magnetism and spintronics, prediction of novel magnetic compounds, as well as application-specific materials such as magnets for use in extreme conditions of technological operations and nanomagnetic systems for biomedical use as drug delivery agents, hyperthermia therapy, and contrast enhancement in magnetic resonance imaging or gene sequencing, to name but a few.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 semimonthly 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 2900 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.
