Controlling the wetting properties of solid surfaces is important in many aspects of engineering solutions for healthcare, water harvesting, energy conversion, and industrial painting, just to mention some key applications. As scientists, we can contribute by providing a deeper understanding of the wetting phenomena and demonstrate the solutions. For inspiration, we can look at the solutions already developed by nature through millions of years of evolution. Many of those biomimetic designs comprise surface textures on the nano-scale. How do we engineer solid surfaces by nanostructures and surface chemistry to enable properties such as self-cleaning, omni-phobicity, anti-icing, anti-fogging, drag reduction, anti-fouling, and lubrication to address the societal needs, and why does it work? We would very much like to consider your proposed answer in the form of a scientific paper to these questions in this Special Issue of Nanomaterials.Dr. Rafael J. Taboryski
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.
