Special Issue Information
A detailed understanding of the formation, properties, and dynamical behavior of nanostructured materials becomes increasingly important with the development of new devices and technologies. In particular, the lion’s share of the interest in these objects is due to their optoelectronic properties, which allow for a large number of applications ranging from sensing to theranostics to photovoltaics. In particular, both organic and inorganic nano-objects suffer from limitations in their optoelectronic uses: for instance, inorganic materials are expensive and have reached a sort of plateau in their current possible applications, and organic materials would be cheap to produce, but also show reduced efficiency and deteriorate easily. For this reason, hybrid materials made up by both organic and inorganic components might represent a breakthrough with the possibility to combine the best of both worlds. However, for the latter to occur, a deeper understanding of their assembly, properties, and features is needed.
This Special Issue will be devoted to advances in the experimental as well as theoretical knowledge of hybrid organic/inorganic nanostructured materials suitable for optoelectronic applications: specifically, full papers, short communications, and reviews addressing the current challenges in designing, synthesizing, characterizing, and understanding hybrid nanoparticles are very welcome.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
Dr. Francesco Muniz-Miranda
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 2600 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.
