Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are grateful to all authors, reviewers, and readers for their responses to the first edition of our Special Issue on “Recent Advances in Aerogels”. You can access these articles for free via the link:

The field of aerogels has seen tremendous growth in recent years. The potential of those materials has been recognized, and they have been used extensively in both research and real-life applications. Even though there are still some disagreements around the definition of aerogels, research on those highly porous materials with high surface areas and other advanced properties is growing exponentially. Disseminations of new findings are mainly focusing on the real-life applications of such materials in drug delivery systems, tissue engineering, insulation, energy storage, and buildings, to name a few. With the development of new routes to aerogel synthesis, some old characterization methods are also being questioned and new ones investigated. New materials from inorganic, organic, and hybrid aerogels are being prepared with unique properties and functionalities. Therefore, we look forward to the submission of new results to this Special Issue on “Recent Advances in Aerogels”. The submission of both theoretical and experimental studies is welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Gels 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.
