Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Crystal structures control the properties and behaviors of nanomaterials under different pressure and temperature conditions. Nanomaterials have superior characteristics compared to their bulk counterparts. Synthetic and natural nanomaterials have gained prominence in today’s world because of their useful chemical and physical properties, and these materials also have toxicity and environmental impacts.

This Special Issue aims to publish papers related to state-of-the-art experimental characterization of synthetic and natural nanomaterials, including but not limited to the following topics:

  • Structural and chemical characterization of nanomaterials (1–1000 nm size range);
  • Results of cutting-edge experimental techniques to nanomaterials (scattering and diffraction techniques, HRTEM, etc.);
  • Properties and technological uses;
  • Environmental impacts.

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. Sci is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1200 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.
