Preparation of complex transition metal oxides and investigation of their structure, magnetic, electrical, and dielectric properties is an actual trend of condensed matter physics and chemistry. This topic is not only important from a fundamental point of view, but it also has great applied importance. Complex transition metal oxides belong to the so-called class of strongly correlated electronic systems, since they demonstrate a strong interconnection of magnetic, electrical, and elastic properties among the most commonly used 3D metals, such as Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, and Ni. However, the most promising for practical use are iron-based oxides with perovskite (orthoferrites), spinel (spinel-ferrites), and magnetoplumbite (hexaferrites) structures. Their prospects are determined by high values of total magnetic moment and temperature of phase transitions. Nanometer particle size significantly alters their electronic properties. Complex transition metal oxides are promising for practical use as permanent magnets, spintronics elements, and microwave materials for 5G communication technology.

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 2000 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.
