Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
With the rapid development of industrial technology, the demand for lightweight, energy-absorbing, and multi-functionalities is increasing in many fields, such as automobile manufacturing, transportation, energy, and aerospace. Porous structural–functional materials, such as metal foams and lattice structures, have entered the field of vision due to their light weight, high specific strength, high stiffness, and large specific surface area.
This Special Issue aims to provide a platform for researchers around the world to focus on porous materials and structures. We warmly welcome original research papers demonstrating the most recent advances as well as comprehensive reviews addressing state-of-the-art aspects in the field of porous materials and structures. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following themes:
- Innovative porous materials (inorganic, organic, and hybrids).
- Fabrication, characterization, functionalization, and use of porous materials in different applications.
- Advanced manufacturing approaches and processing, including additive manufacturing techniques of porous materials.
- Novel characterization methods and approaches, such as 3D imaging and reconstruction.
- Simulation/optimization properties of porous materials.
- Metamaterials and applications.
It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, short communications, and reviews are all welcome.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences 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 2300 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.
