The complex and intriguing mechanical/physical properties of polymeric materials, originating from multiple spatial and temporal scales, call for advanced multiscale computational techniques in order to account for all important mechanisms in polymers.
Recent decades have witnessed an explosion of research into the physical, mechanical, electrical, and chemical properties of carbon-based nanomaterials, since the discovery of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) by Iijima in 1991. Carbon nanomaterials offer unique advantages in a wealth of applications such as sensors, electronics, composites, catalysts, energy storage, etc. due to its excellent high surface-volume ratio, high electrical conductivity, chemical stability, and strong mechanical strength. Meanwhile, computational modeling and simulation, such as density function theory, molecular dynamics, and coarse-grained molecular simulations, has been emerging as an indispensable tool to complement and/or guide experiments in this carbon nanomaterials field.
This Special Issue is dedicated to recent research advances in computational modeling and theoretical analysis in carbon-based nanomaterials and their relevant applications, irrespective of the properties of interest, and, more specifically, to molecular dynamics methods, coarse-grained methods, finite element methods, and multiscale computational methods in carbon nanomaterials.

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.
