Carbon nanomaterials are amongst the most investigated and used fillers for polymer nanocomposites. Composites and hybrids based on nanostructured carbon have been used in aerospace applications, water desalination and purification, energy conversion and storage, the automobile industry, medical and electronic devices, and other emerging applications. Several Special Issues on carbon-based polymer composites and their applications have been published. The oldest Special Issue is entitled "Modeling and Characterization of Nanostructured Materials" and was published in 2003 following U.S. President Bill Clinton’s announcement of the United States National Nanotechnology Initiative. However, in light of the rapid development of the field, we feel that the time is right to organize a new Special Issue. We also feel that Polymers is the natural choice for the new Special Issue based on the success of recently published themed issues. This Special Issue focuses on recent advances in research on carbon-based nanocomposites, including (but not limited to) CNT-, graphene-, CNF-, and naturally derived carbon-based nanocomposites. Contributions (both original research articles and comprehensive reviews) will cover the most recent developments in the design, concepts, and properties of nanocomposites and recent advances in their application.

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. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
