Special Issue "Preparation and Application of Noble Metal and Semi-Conductive Nanoparticles"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (5 January 2020).
Interests: Noble metal and iron-containing nanoparticles - preparation and physicochemical characterization; infrared absorption spectroscopy; Raman spectroscopy and surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy; laser ablation; surface modification of nanoparticles; preparation and application of semi-conductive nanoparticles.
Nanoparticles and nanostructures (e.g., nanoclusters, nanocrystals, and nanosponges) represent a blossoming field of science in general and nanoscience in particular. Noble metal and semi-conductive nanoparticles have been prepared and applied in different fields for a very long time already. Nevertheless, the topic is still very appealing, as new types of their preparation and application emerge. On the one hand, simple and rapid syntheses, suitable for scaling-up, have been published; on the other hand, sophisticated methods of nanoparticles preparation and the surface-modification of nanostructures for specific demands have been introduced. Due to a bundle of characterization techniques enabling a deeper insight into nanoparticles formation, customized and optimized nanoparticles syntheses for specified applications have been realized. This Special Issue of Nanomaterials is focused on the preparation and application of noble metal nanoparticles, semi-conductive nanoparticles, and nanostructures. The format of welcomed contributions includes communications, full-length articles, and reviews.

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.
