Over the last three decades, the availability of a different typology of nanoparticles has increased enormously, giving a concrete chance to develop tunable materials for specific structural and functional applications.
Adding nanoparticles to a polymer matrix can enhance its performance, at the same time tailoring specific properties. This approach is particularly effective in applications for which specific functionalities are needed, such as conductive polymer, enhanced thermal conductive matrix, high performance composites, functional coating, nanocomposite foams or “smart” materials for sensing.
This Special Issue, titled: “Advanced Materials for Aerospace: Polymer Nanocomposites”, within the Nanomaterials Journal of MDPI, aims to publish original research, which will add knowledge to the current understanding on polymer nanocomposites, including fundamental structure/property relationships, property characterization, and numerical modeling and manufacturing techniques. At the same, review work reporting the current state of the art for a specific feature of polymer nanocomposites with main interests for aeronautical and space applications is 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 2200 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.
