Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
In the last few decades, the great demand for devices miniaturization has attracted the attention of researchers that focused on growth, modification, properties, and applications of one-dimensional nanostructures, such as nanotubes. Nanotubes are cylindrical structures with diameters of 1-100 nm. In recent years, nanotubes synthesized from different kind of materials (i.e., carbon-CNTs, titanium-NTAs, silicon carbide, boron nitride-BNNTs, etc.) have been selected as promising alternative materials for various applications, based on their characteristic properties, such as CNTs– electrically insulating, semiconducting or of metallic conductance; NTAs–large area/volume ratio and faster electron transport, as well as low recombination rate of charge carriers, which enable increased photocatalytic efficiency, durability; SiC nanotubes–light weight filler in nanocomposite, catalyst support, environment electronics, hydrogen storage; BNNTs–the study of photoluminiscence, chatodluminiscence, absorption spectra, etc.
The Special Issue of Nanomaterials will attempt to cover the recent advancements in the nanotubes materials for electronic devices, photocatalytic devices, environment electronics devices, UV light source devices, etc.

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 2400 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.
