Recent demands regarding wearable, light-weight portable devices stressed the importance of developing new materials for bendable, rollable, and even stretchable electronics on nonrigid substrates, and nanomaterials have played a significant role in the improvement of these flexible/stretchable electronics in recent years. The wide variety of nanomaterials has proven to exhibit significant flexibility/stretchability at both the micro- and macroscale, while much attention also has been focused on novel techniques developed for nanomaterial processing to meet the mild processing conditions and enable facile production in relatively simple procedures. The application of these nanomaterials on flexible/stretchable devices is currently an active and vibrant research area that has high potential in the display, sensors, energy storage, conversion, and harvesting fields.
We invite authors to contribute original research articles and review articles covering current progress on the preparation and the usage of nanomaterials for flexible and stretchable devices. The current Special Issue will take account of a broad range of subjects from nanomaterial synthesis to relevant technologies and the resultant nanomaterial-based flexible and stretchable devices. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials
- Design and preparation of novel nanotextured/nanostructured surfaces
- Flexible/stretchable percolation network composed of low-dimensional nanomaterials
- Solution processes and other lithography-free techniques for nanomaterial processing
- Nanomaterial-based printing techniques including 3D printing
- Other environmentally friendly processes compatible to substrates
- Nanomaterial-based flexible/stretchable electronics including display, sensor, and energy devices
- Other applications related to nanomaterials for devices
- Post-processing to enhance mechanical stability of flexible/stretchable devices

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.
