Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to submit your recent innovative manuscripts to this special issue “Future Trends in Nanocrystal Composites”. To overcome the current energy crises, novel materials that allow for energy saving or enhancing the efficiency of energy transfer should be made available by researchers and scientists. A global trend now is to move to gran hydrogen. Of course, the hydrogen chain require solutions for hydrogen storage and transfer, which is for today is not very efficient. Also, the use of hydrogen is always associated with material that possesses excellent electrical properties. The aim of this special issue is to enrich the scientific community knowledge with recent innovative nanocomposites manufacturing, processing, microstructural, mechanical, electrical, thermal, and wear properties, that might serve in the field of energy saving and efficiency of energy transfer. This might include metal- and polymer-based nanocomposites reinforced with different ceramics with special interest to Graphene and its derivatives.

In this special issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following:

  • Manufacturing of nanocomposites;
  • Microstructural evolutions;
  • Mechanical properties;
  • Physical properties;
  • Graphene nanocomposites;
  • Hydrogen storage composites.

I look forward to receiving your contributions.

Dr. Ahmed Abdelhady
Guest Editor

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.
