Special Issue "Nanostructures: Preparation, Structural Characteristics and Properties"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2024 | Viewed by 1023
Interests: photodynamic properties; intra/inter-molecular interactions in solutions and in solvent mixtures (preferential solvation) and the effect of medium factors; solvatochromic behavior of some azomaleimide derivatives using density functional theory (DFT), charge transfer in azomaleimides by quantochemical calculations (DFT, TD-DFT, ab initio)
The nanostructured materials have gained a great interest in the past years not only for basic scientific research, but for their practical perspectives due to their unique physico-chemical characteristics as compared to the bulk counterparts. Preparation of highly quality nanostructures having tailorable size, shape and morphology is essential for applications in optoelectronics, photocatalysis, ceramics, biomedical imaging, sensing, waterwaste treatment or nanodevices. Also, the semiconducting quantum dots present an intensive development in the field of nanotechnology. The size, surface structure and interactions between nanoparticles can lead to the new properties and improve the performances of the nanomaterials which can realize by their controllable synthesis. A continual effort has been performed towards the nanostructured metal oxides due to their unexpected physical and chemical characteristics that arise from quantum confinement at nanoscale. Additionally, the optical and electrical properties of the nanostructures are very important in the elucidation of the reactions and formation mechanisms of the nanoparticles. This special issue proposes to highlight, but it is not limited, recent progress in the synthesis, properties and applicability of the nanostructured materials, modification of the nanostructures by transition or noble metals as well as the future trends.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
