Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
This Special Issue has focused on original research articles and critical reviews on “hexagonal ferrites：synthesis, structure and properties". The main aim is to focus on related topics by publishing the current developments in hexagonal ferrites.
Hexaferrites have attracted considerable attention due to their wide applicability, such as in permanent magnets, magnetic recording, and RF and microwave applications. They are classified into six types namely, M, U, W, X, Y, and Z, according to different stacking sequences of the three basic blocks S, R, and T in the crystal structure. Currently, hexaferrites have been explored for more exotic applications. This is particularly true as electronic components for mobile and wireless communications at microwave/GHz frequencies, electromagnetic wave absorbers for EMC, RAM and stealth technologies, and as composite materials.
This Special Issue of Magnetochemistry on “hexagonal ferrites：synthesis, structure and properties" will closely follow the research in this topic to highlight the recent achievements of hexagonal ferrites from leading groups around the world. Synthesis, structure and properties of hexagonal ferrites, and their applications are appreciated.
In particular, the topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- M-type hexaferrites;
- W-type hexaferrites;
- Y-type hexaferrites;
- Z-type hexaferrites;
- X-type hexaferrites;
- U-type hexaferrites;
- other hexaferrites;
- composites of hexagonal ferrites and other materials.

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. Magnetochemistry 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 2700 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.
