Special Issue "Materials Preparation, Characterization and Applications in Raman Spectroscopy"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 August 2023) | Viewed by 1391
Raman spectroscopy is a non-destructive chemical analysis technique, which could provide detailed information about the chemical composition, structure, polymorphy, crystallinity and molecular interactions of a sample, whether solid, liquid, gas, gel, slurry or powder. Thus, it has been broadly used in optics, biomedicine, environmental science, materials, catalysis, energy, and so forth. Whether the goal is to collect qualitative or quantitative data, Raman analysis can provide key information quickly and easily.
In addition, surface-enhanced Raman scattering/spectroscopy (SERS) has attracted increasing interest in recent years, both in terms of its fundamental physics/chemistry and applications in many fields. Benefitting from the rapid development of nanomaterials and nanotechnologies, SERS are widely used as a label-free and ultra-high sensitivity detection method in surface analyses, as well as biomolecular and chemical sensing. SERS also play an important role in the in situ characterization of surface catalytic reactions under working conditions, providing important spectral evidence regarding the reaction intermediates produced on catalyst surfaces.
This Special Issue aims to focus on the latest advances in the preparation and applications of Raman Spectra in materials characterization, and applications of nanomaterials and nanostructures. Original research papers, as well as review contributions, are welcome in this issue.

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. 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.
