Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The development and use of nanomaterials is one of the most active research area. This class of materials has demonstrated a wide variety of applications ranging from biomedicine, to sensors or energy. Nanomaterial preparation procedures are generally based on conventional heating methods with long synthetic times and reagents consumption. In addition, conventional synthesis methods sometimes lead to the formation of heterogeneous materials. By contrast, the use of microwaves as an energy source appears as a strategy that allows some or all of these inconveniences to be overcome.

This Special Issue “The Microwave Assisted Synthesis of Nanomaterials” will offer an overview of new advances present trends and future perspectives in the use of this kind of energy as heat source. It is open to any nanomaterial prepared using microwave in any of the synthetic steps. Materials can be 2D nanomaterials, nanoparticles, etc. Also to the reports of applications of nanomaterials prepared following microwave assisted are welcome.

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.
