Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the last several years, many research groups from sciences and engineering areas have focused on developing tailor-made, functional, nanostructured organic and hybrid materials for addressing and offering solutions to emerging issues from domains of greatest interest, including electronics, clean energy, environmental remediation, or human health. Moreover, the synergetic combination of the properties of organic and inorganic constituents in hybrid materials endorses them as one of the most powerful and versatile material classes that can solve many technological problems. The organic and hybrid nanomaterials can be obtained by various pathways covering wet chemical routes, dry physical methods, laser and vapor deposition techniques, etc. Further, these can be integrated into devices using different lithographical approaches, expanding their potential applications.

Consequently, this Special Issue invites the authors to contribute with research articles or reviews covering nanostructured organic and hybrid materials' synthesis, properties, and applications. The broad topical scope includes, but is not limited, to the following:

  • Organic and organic–inorganic hybrid materials;
  • Organic small molecules and (bio-)polymers;
  • Inorganic compounds based on metal oxides, semiconductors, metals, carbon nanostructures;
  • Synthesis pathways: wet (solution processing), dry (thermal oxidation, magnetron sputtering), laser, and vapor deposition techniques;
  • Lithography processing;
  • Fabrication of devices based on organic and organic-inorganic hybrid materials;
  • Functional properties and applications in micromachines.

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. Micromachines 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 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.
