Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are excited to invite contributions to a Special Issue of MDPI’s Materials, entitled “Structural, Thermal, Electrical and Electrochemical Properties of Novel Ceramics”. This Special Issue eagerly welcomes novel manuscripts dealing with previously unpublished advances in multifaceted characteristics and unveiling potential applications of advanced materials in the realm of ceramic nanocomposites.

These materials offer a unique combination of properties that span structural features, thermal characteristics, electrical conductivity, and electrochemical performance. Delving into the intricate interplay between the microstructure, composition, and processing techniques to engineer materials with tailored functionalities is crucial for harnessing the full potential of these materials. Advances in the area will help to unlock new avenues for innovation in diverse fields such as energy storage, catalysis, sensing, and electronic devices.

The objective of this SI is to consolidate findings pertaining to the synthesis of and enhanced preparation techniques for novel ceramic nanocomposites, structural and morphological characteristics, and with micro(structure)–property correlations. Furthermore, this compilation aims to elucidate potential applications of these nanocomposite 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.
