Special Issue "Multifunctional Magnetic Nanocomposites: Innovative Processing and Applications"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2020.
Interests: Magnetic interactions and local electronic phenomena in intermetallics and oxides, molecular magnets, metal-organic compounds and catalysts, nanomagnetism and magnetic interactions and spin structure at the surface/interface of bilayer thin films with different magnetic anisotropies, exchange bias and exchange spring systems, multilayers, spintronics and spin-valves, magnetic nanopowders, magnetic nanoparticles dispersed in various solid state matrices, diluted magnetic semiconductors, magnetic fluids, magnetic nanocomposites, magnetofunctional materials
The main advantage of heterogeneous nanosystems is the possibility of combining and inter-influencing the electronic properties of constituent interfaced nanophases. Unique physicochemical properties of the hybrid material of interest in various applications can be obtained. The functionality of such systems can be provided by the possibility to actuate the most sensitive nanophase and to exploit the proper response of another nanophase which is directly or indirectly influenced by the actuated phase.
Multifunctional magnetic nanocomposites are among such heterogeneous nanosized systems where at least one phase component is magnetic and can act as an intermediate of either the actuation or the response of the system. As compared to the heterogeneous layered systems with at least one magnetic layer of nanometer thickness, also of high technological impact, multifunctional magnetic nanocomposites can be obtained by less expensive processing technologies. In addition, they present much extended specific surfaces and active interfaces which allow additional engineering of the application-oriented parameters through tunable morphologies of the nanosized components.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will report on the innovative processing, characterization, and applications of multifunctional magnetic nanocomposites consisting of different matrices (polymer-like, carbon-based, oxides, or intermetallics) embedded or decorated by different magnetic nanostructures (magnetic nanoparticles and nanowires of different organizations and of different structures from monophase to core–shell).

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.
