Cellulose nanomaterials and nanocomposites have been demonstrated to provide a greater contribution to sustainability, due to their excellent potential as biodegradable and renewable alternatives to non-biodegradable polymers used in single-use plastics, reinforcing fibers, and coatings in different industrial sectors, such as, for example, papermaking, building, electronics, and medicine. Cellulose nanopapers have attracted the attention of numerous researchers as a result of their unique physical and optical properties, as well as their ability to be modified to present electric and magnetic properties. Cellulose nanomaterials obtained from, for example, cellulose nanofibers, have been proved to reinforce composite materials, such as biodegradable polymers PLA, paper, and cement. A new generation of materials consisting of or reinforced with nanocelluloses are required to replace high-environmental-impacting materials. However, this requires further research efforts in order to make more feasible the production and commercialization of these materials.
The current Special Issue invites submissions of papers concerning the novel contributions to the knowledge on cellulose nanomaterials, such as nanopapers and materials modified with nanocelluloses, including cement, plastics, and paper. Lengthy papers, short communications, and reviews are also welcome for submission.

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. Nanomaterials 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 2900 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.
