Special Issue "Textiles Nanotechnology"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 June 2016).
Interests: controlled deposition of nanomaterials on fibrous substrates; textile-based electronics; wearable sensors of toxic gases, explosives, and warfare agents; internet of soft objects
Textiles were the main products of the industrial revolution in the early 1800s. In the late 1900s, the nanoscience revolution enabled the synthesis of materials with molecular precision. The combination of nanomaterials and textiles has exploded in the last 20 years, offering unique opportunities for the creation of new functionalities in traditional textiles as well as new textile materials.
The present Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims at presenting the current state-of-the-art in the use of nanotechnology in textiles—new fibers, new finishes, new functionalities, new metrologies, and new integrative approaches for manufacturing and modifying fibrous materials. The scope of this Special Issue includes all types of fibrous materials from filters to apparel, from carpets to geotextiles, from electronic textiles to protective clothing. We will have invited contributions from leading groups in the field offering a balanced perspective of the current state-of-the-art and discussions on the future direction for the use of nanotechnology in textiles.
I look forward to receive your contributions.
Prof. Dr. Juan P. Hinestroza
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.
