Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The unique properties of mesoporous and zeolite-based nanomaterials predetermine their wide range of applications, from catalytic and adsorption processes to the development of new drug delivery systems. Modified mesoporous silicas, nanosized metal oxides, and hierarchical zeolites are successfully applied in processes for environmental protection, such as VOC oxidation and water purification, biomass valorization, and CO2 capture and utilization. The development of new nanostructured materials requires the application of a complex of routine and advanced physicochemical methods for their design.

This Special Issue aims to provide a forum for recent achievements in the synthesis and application of new nanomaterials. Experimental and theoretical studies on structural elucidation, adsorption, and catalytic processes in the presence of nanomaterials will be published.

We hope this Special Issue will demonstrate the capabilities and new applications of nanomaterials.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: the synthesis, modification, and computational modeling of mesoporous silicas, nanosized metal oxides, zeolites, and their application.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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. 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.
