Nanocelluloses (NCs) are bio-based nano-structured products that open up new solutions for natural material sciences. In recent years, many research groups and industries have been extensively working on ground-breaking innovations for the characterization and production of cellulose nanofibers (CNF), cellulose nanocrystals (CNC), and bacterial nanocellulose (BNC), making possible new potential applications in many different areas, such as composites, paper and board, packaging, paints and coatings, oil and gas, personal care, cosmetics, UV filters, medical implants, antibacterial materials, drug delivery, 3D printing, inks, food stabilizers, functional food ingredients, food and beverages, super-absorbents, environmental and wastewater treatments, metal removal, membrane filtration, CO2 adsorption, agriculture, insulators, fire retardants, batteries, biosensors, flexible electronics, energy storage, cement industry, textiles, sports footwear, plastics, rheology modifiers, etc.. In summary, NCs open up an endless number of applications.
This Special Issue aims to cover a broad range of NCs applications in the industry. Full papers, short communications, and reviews are welcome.
Submissions with outstanding contributions to accelerate the generation of new knowledge and to make significant advances in the industrial use of NCs are especially 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.
