Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials addresses the link between information on innovation, research, development, and demonstration with the areas of nuclear decommissioning and decontamination science and technology, the optimal use of nuclear decommissioning and decontamination in nuclear energy sites, the analysis and optimization of processes, mitigation of environmental pollutants, and nuclear power plants. The complexity of issues and challenges relating to nanomaterials in nuclear decommissioning and decontamination science and technology has been recognized and, therefore, this Special Issue particularly welcomes work of a multidisciplinary nature across the fields of chemical, physical, and biological sciences, and environmental, material, mechanical, and nuclear engineering. In addition to traditional subjects, papers dealing with new areas of science and technology within nanomaterials, that fit the broad scope and objectives of the journal, are encouraged. My aim is to encourage scientists and engineers to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. Therefore, there is no restriction on the length of the papers, and original papers, review articles, editorials, case reports, short communications, technical notes, and letters to editor are all welcome. Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts which bridge the gaps between research, development, and implementation. The breadth of coverage includes innovative technologies and systems of nuclear decommissioning and decontamination science and technology in 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.
