Fast urbanization and industrialization have resulted in growing demands for the industrial production of value-added products and caused a considerable increase in the consumption of non-renewable energy as well as discharging of different pollutants into the environment. Thus, the design and development of advanced nanomaterials and technologies with improved activities have become interesting research areas with different applications including environmental remediation, chemical conversion, and energy production. For practical applications, different methods are used to fabricate efficient nanomaterials such as the construction of heterojunctions, interface and surface design, incorporation of sensitizers, synthesis of nanocomposites, heteroatom doping, etc. In this landscape, this Special Issue collects the research papers and reviews regarding the engineering, synthesis, and characterization of novel nanomaterials and the study of their application for the removal of water pollutants, air purification, reduction of CO2, production of value-added chemicals, evolution of renewable hydrogen energy, etc. Topics of interest covered in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Synthesis of highly porous nanomaterials with improved physicochemical characteristics;
- Design and fabrication of defective metal oxides;
- Fabrication of high-performance nanomaterials with different morphologies (nanofibers/nanorods, nanosheets, and 3D nanostructures);
- Construction of heterojunctions for catalysis, photocatalysis, and electrocatalysis;
- Study of structural, photoelectrochemical, and morphological characteristics of synthesized nanomaterials;
- Applications in water and wastewater treatment, energy conversion, energy storage, synthesis of chemicals, hydrogen production, detection of pollutants, CO2 reduction, air purification, etc.

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.
