Plasma technology is a rapidly evolving field with a wide range of applications in various areas including electronics, energy, the environment, and biomedicine. In recent years, plasma-based techniques have gained significant attention for the synthesis and modification of nanomaterials. One of the key advantages of plasma processing is its ability to control the surface properties of materials at the nanoscale. Accordingly, plasma provides a unique capability to tailor the surface chemistry, morphology, and functionality of nanomaterials for the demands of various applications.
This Special Issue, entitled New Trends in Plasma Technology for Nanomaterials and Applications, aims to provide an overview of the latest developments in the areas covering plasma-assisted synthesis and modification of nanomaterials, and in new trends of their various applications. We invite researchers to submit the latest research papers to the Special Issue, which provides a unique platform to showcase the latest trends and advances in plasma technology for nanomaterials. The contributions may cover a wide range of topics. These include but are not limited to:
- Plasma-based synthesis of nanomaterials, including nanoparticles, nanotubes, nanowires, and nanocomposites;
- Plasma-assisted surface modification of nanomaterials to enhance their properties such as catalytic activity, surface wettability, and biocompatibility;
- Plasma-based techniques for the fabrication of nanodevices, such as nanosensors and nanoelectronics;
- Applications of plasma-synthesized/functionalized nanomaterials in energy storage, catalysis, biomedical applications, and environmental remediation.
Overall, this Special Issue offers an excellent opportunity for researchers and scientists to share their latest research findings and contribute to the field of plasma technology and nanomaterials. We welcome any original research articles and review papers related to this topic.

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.
