Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The main topics of this Issue will be regarding the synthesis, characterization, and applications of innovative metal oxide nanostructures for energy harvesting, permanent magnets, magnetocalorics for magnetic refrigeration technology, exchange bias for data storage, molecular magnets for quantum computers, water treatment, hyperthermia cancer therapy, drug delivery, and contrast agents for MRI. Such applications are currently some of the most needed technologies, including needed solutions for health, energy, and clean water. Metal oxide nanostructures have been of interest for many decades due to their interesting chemical and physical properties that include optical, magnetic, electrical, thermal transport, etc. Therefore, the aim of this Special Issue is to cover the state-of-the-art of the current innovative research in metal oxide nanostructures, including experimental and theoretical studies.

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.
