Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, nanoribbons have attracted increasing interest for their peculiar electrical and thermal properties. For instance, graphene nanoribbons exhibit an electrical conductivity much larger than that of graphene itself, and a thermal conductivity that can be modulated at will by engineering their shape. As another example, nanoribbons made of ultrathin alkali titanates provide superior performance when employed as electrodes in ion batteries.

On the one hand, those discoveries have stimulated further studies on the electron and phonon behavior at the nanoscale, on the other hand they pave the way to technological achievements that span from sub-micrometric electronic devices to next-generation energy storing systems.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials is aimed at describing the recent advances in nanoribbon chemistry, physics, and technology, from the growth techniques to the experimental and theoretical investigations of their intriguing electronic properties.

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.
