Interests: synthesis of shape- and size-controlled metallic nanocrystals and their electrocatalytic applications in fuel cells (both anode and cathode); self-assembly and superstructure of nanopolyhedra (both single- and binary compositions); synthesis of semiconductor nanocrystals and their thermoelectric/photovoltaic applications; synthesis of 1D and core-shell structured functional nanomaterials; high-pressure exploration of nanopolyhedron-based superlattices
We would like to invite you to submit an original research paper or comprehensive review for inclusion in a high-profile issue on the use of nanomaterials for energy and sustainability applications, to be published in the journal Nanomaterials. Nanomaterials cross a bridge between bulk materials and substances on an atomic/molecular scale, and have shown various novel and interesting properties, especially in energy and sustainability properties.
This Special Issue will focus on how employing nanomaterials in energy research, which includes, but is not limited to, the added benefits of using nanomaterials for catalyzing important chemical conversions, for enhancing photovoltaic conversion and energy storage, and for device development of renewable energy harvest, based on characteristics governed by the surface, composition, phase and structure of nanomaterials. This issue will include a mix of full papers, communications, reviews, and mini-reviews.
Nanomaterials will facilitate the peer-reviewing and will make the final editorial decisions. All manuscripts will be published online as quickly as possible. Submission of manuscripts to Nanomaterials must go via https://www.mdpi.com/journal/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 1500 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.
