II-VI semiconductor nanocrystals and hybrids polymer–nanocrystal systems have been subject of intense interdisciplinary research activity in the last few years.
This research includes the development of synthesis protocols for obtaining nanocrystals with high control of chemical composition, shape, size and optical and electronic properties, the investigation of the electronic properties by a wide range of advanced spectroscopic techniques and the demonstration and optimization of a wide range of devices, such as light emitting diodes, solar cells, optically-pumped lasers, and sensors. Moreover the combination of nanocrystals with organic polymers allows the development of novel functional materials combining the best properties of the components and thus with performances improved with respect to the ones of the individual components.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims to describe the state-of-the-art and the recent advances of the synthesis methods of II-VI nanocrystals, of the photophysics investigation of their electronic properties and of their possible applications in photonic and optoelectronic devices.
Research articles, review articles, as well as short communications, are invited.

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.
