Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The term "carbon nanomaterials" describes a class of nanoscale materials largely made up of carbon atoms. Due to their small size, large surface area, and remarkable structural qualities, these materials offer special attributes. The most well-known carbon nanomaterials are fullerenes, nano diamond, graphene, and carbon nanotubes (CNTs). These carbon-based nano materials have found applications in various sectors like electronics and optoelectronics, energy storage, energy harvesting and conversion, composite materials, drug delivery, genetic engineering, nanomedicine, water purification, catalysis, sensors, aerospace applications, environmental remediation, conductive inks and coatings, among others. Their unique properties and versatility make them an exciting area of study and innovation in the field of nanotechnology. Applications of carbon nanomaterials are predicted to increase as nanotechnology research develops, revolutionizing numerous industries and advancing science and technology.

This Special Issue will cover a wide rage of topics related to the emerging applications of carbon nano materials in the current scenario. Papers specifying experimental, computational, and theoretical studies of carbon nano materials are equally welcome. Research topics comprise, but are not limited, to the following:

  • Design and synthesis of carbon nanomaterials for various applications;
  • Green synthesis of carbon nano materials;
  • Physical and chemical characteristics of carbon nano materials;
  • Chemistry to prepare different carbon materials, as well as their surface chemistry.
  • Applications of carbon nanomaterials in energy, biomedical field, environmental remediation, water purification, composite materials, etc.

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. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 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.
