Self-propelled micro and nanomotors are nanoscale devices capable of converting energy into movement and forces. The self-propelled structure can be equipped with sensing and actuating attachments to perform myriad complex tasks. Nanomotors are currently the subject of intense interest due to their potential applications in nanomachinery, nanomedicine, fluidic systems, nanoscale transport, and assembly. The type of nanomaterial used in their fabrication plays a critical role in future functionality, enabling important biomedical, analytical, and environmental applications.
This Special Issue aims to highlight the most recent and promising technologies in nano- and micromotors, their materials, fabrication, and applications. Reviews, original research papers, and communications are all welcome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Micro- and nanomaterials for micromotor fabrication.
- Role of micro- and nanomaterials in micromotor propulsion.
- Recent advances in fuel-free (magnetic and light-propelled) micromotors.
- Applications in analytical sensing, biomedicine, or environmental remediation.

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.
