Special Issue "Metallic Nanoparticles and Their Assembly within Hybrid Nanostructures for Environmental Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2020.
Interests: nanoparticles; hybrid nanostructures; synthesis and characterization; environmental applications: gas sensing; renewable energy; energy storage systems; photo-electrocatalysis processes
Nanoparticles-based nanotechnologies currently have a prominent position in research and are used to improve many aspects of our daily life. Alone or in combination with other nanomaterials, their characteristics (i.e., size, shape, composition, and environment) can give them remarkable properties that, if suitably exploited, allow groundbreaking results to be obtained in several application fields. In particular, health and environment are fields where the use of nanoparticle-based nanomaterials has provided an important contribution—for example, in gas or bio-sensors, renewable energy production, energy storage systems, photo-electrocatalysis, and so on.
This Special Issue aims to collect manuscripts dealing with the use of metallic nanoparticles alone or in combination with other nanomaterials (i.e., carbon nanostructures or semiconductor nanomaterials), or even as a part of polymeric nanocomposites, focused on solving different environmental issues. Subjects that fall into the scope of this Special Issue include: synthesis methodologies of metallic nanoparticles; the preparation of nanocomposites; electrical, structural, and morphological characterization; physico-chemical interaction with gases; and electro- and photocatalytic properties.
Manuscripts can be submitted in the following formats: full research papers, communications, 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.
