The application of advanced polymer synthesis techniques have enabled the preparation of a wide array of functional nanomaterials. These techniques have yielded a broad suite of polymeric nanomaterials that have found applications in a variety of industries and research fields. In addition, the combination of functional polymers (e.g., stimuli-responsive, anti-fouling, biocompatible, antimicrobial, etc.) with nanostructured materials (e.g., iron oxide nanoparticles, graphene, carbon nanotubes, etc.) leads to novel hybrid nanomaterials with desirable physicochemical properties. In this Special Issue of Nanomaterials, we will highlight cutting-edge research on the topic of “Nanomaterials with Functional Polymer Elements”. In particular, this Special Issue will feature new developments in the synthesis, characterization and application of all polymeric nanomaterials and polymer-functionalized nanoparticles provided functional polymers are the key elements. We look forward to receiving your contribution to this exciting Special Issue of 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 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.
