Special Issue Information
To date, several approaches, such as phase separation, self-assembly, drawing, template synthesis, and electrospinning, have been put forward for the fabrication of one-dimensional (1D) fibrous structures from various polymers. A wide range of polymers have been electrospun to prepare nanofibers. So far, more than 200 polymers have been reported to have been made into nanofiber structures with the electrospinning technique. Among these various electrospun nanofibers possessing high specific surface area, porosity, and flexibility, organic and inorganic hybrid nanofibers are widely used materials for environmental remediation and high-tech applications such as catalyst, electronic and sensing devices, filtration, energy, scaffold, and wound dressing.
This Special Issue on “Organic and Inorganic Nanofibers” will attempt to cover the most recent advances in nanofibers, concerning not only the synthesis and characterization but especially reports of their functional and smart properties to be applied in working devices. Nanofibers have emerged widely, from organic and inorganic syntheses to commercial applications, and nanofiber technology will mature and move beyond its current realization and applications.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 semimonthly 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 2600 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.
