Nanomaterials for flexible and printed electronics endow electronic devices with novel flexibility, foldability, high efficiency, and scalability, overcoming the restrictions of silicon-based electronics and greatly expanding the range of applications in various fields, e.g., in flexible displays, electronic textiles, energy storage devices, sensory skins, etc. Consequently, flexible and printed electronics have attracted widespread attention from both academic and industrial communities, and have witnessed remarkable breakthroughs in terms of material development, device fabrication, packaging, and integration.
The aim of this Special Issue entitled “Nanomaterials for Flexible and Printed Electronics” is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present and review the latest advances regarding the development, challenges, and future perspectives of multiscale manufacturing toward nanomaterials for flexible and printed electronics, with new materials, processes, printing technologies, and applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Nanomaterials synthesis, characterization, modeling, and applications, along with nanodevice fabrication and testing;
- Organic light-emitting diodes, organic nanotransistors, memory nanodevices, energy storage nanodevices, sensors, and functional nanodevices, conductive electrodes, or circuits;
- Novel applications, including in displays, large-area sensors, functional nanodevices, RFID tags, smart sensors, nanofabrics, and paper-based devices;
- Novel, large-area processing methods, such as inkjet printing, spray pyrolysis, screen printing, solution deposition, and roll-to-roll processing.

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.
