Special Issue "Thermal Transport in Nanostructures and Nanomaterials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (25 December 2020).
Interests: polymer nanocomposites; thermally conductive materials; graphene and related materials; flame retardancy of polymers; thermochemical storage
“Thermal Transport in Nanostructures and Nanomaterials” is currently focusing significant research efforts in different research communities, including material scientists, condensed matter physicists, and computational modelers. Different target applications are currently being investigated, including nanocomposites and other nanostructures with enhanced thermal conductivity, extremely low thermal conductivity aerogels, thermoelectric materials, and phononic materials. Challenges in the control and design of thermally-efficient nanomaterials mostly relate to the properties of interfaces between nano-objects, as well as between nano-objects and the continuous phase. The study of phenomena associated to heat transfer across interfaces in nanomaterials, as well as the engineering of interfaces to obtain nanomaterials with superior thermal properties, are currently fascinating yet challenging research topics, which are expected to soon merge into a unique multidisciplinary research domain.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will attempt to cover the most recent advances in “Thermal Transport in Nanostructures and Nanomaterials”, concerning their design, manufacturing, characterization and computational modelling, as well as exploitation in devices.

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.
