Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Micro/nano energetic materials are ultrafine and usually have an average particle size of up to 20 micrometers (they can be as small as a few nanometers). Micro/nano energetic materials have higher combustion and energy release efficiencies and complete combustion and explosion processes due to their small particle size, large specific surface area, high surface energy, and surface activity. In the formulation of energetic materials, the micro/nanometer particle size gradation is often used to regulate the charge density and energy release of weapons charges to improve their mechanical properties and safety performance. Micro and nano technologies have become the key technology and research hotspot for the revolutionary change in energetic materials. This Special Issue provides a platform for researchers to exchange advanced technologies and performance of micro/nano energetic materials. The research areas include but are not limited to the following areas: emerging technologies and methods for the preparation of micro/nano energetic materials, characterization technologies for micro/nano energetic materials, numerical simulation of the performance for micro/nano energetic materials, application performance of micro/nano energetic materials, and energy release mechanism of micro/nano energetic materials.

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. Materials 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 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.
