Special Issue "Synthesis of Advanced Nanocomposites with Catalytic and Electronic Properties"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 April 2021).
Advanced functional nanocomposites play an important role in many fields of applications, such as catalysis, energy storage, adsorption techniques, ceramics, optoelectronics, sensing, etc. Therefore, the synthesis and characterization of advanced functional nanocomposites are gaining considerable attention from researchers. The crucial features of nanocomposite system allows combining the unique properties (optical, electronic, catalytic, magnetic, etc.) of individual components contained in nanocomposites. For example, the catalytic activities of nanoparticles and high surface area of the carbon matrix is seen as a promising solution for heterogeneous nanocomposite catalysts. Moreover, the utilization of nanocomposite structures in polymer chemistry leads to the improvement of important properties, such as their strength or resistance. In addition, the combination of semiconductor nanoparticles with conjugated polymers provides interesting nanocomposite systems with applications in optoelectronics. Recently, a carbonization of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) was considered as an effective pathway for homogeneous nanocomposite production. Based on these, we would like to announce the Special Issue called “Synthesis of Advanced Nanocomposites with Catalytic and Electronic Properties” to contribute and expand the chemistry, properties, and applications of advanced nanocomposites. The scope of this issue covers the papers mainly focused on the processing of novel homogeneous nanocomposites applied in catalysis and electrochemistry.
This Special Issue on “Synthesis of Advanced Nanocomposites with Catalytic and Electronic Properties” aims to curate novel advances in the development and application of advanced nanocomposites. Topics include but are not limited to:
- Novel techniques for preparation of advanced nanocomposites (e.g., single source precursor decomposition);
- Synthesis and applications of nanocomposites based on metal/metal oxide nanoparticles and conjugated polymers;
- Synthesis and applications of metal/metal oxide nanoparticle containing carbon-based nanocomposites;
- Advanced optical and electronic properties of nanocomposites; and
- Application of advanced nanocomposites in catalysis, energy storage, and optoelectronics.
