Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue includes regular papers published in Nanomaterials in 2023, and selected papers from the 4th International Online Conference on Nanomaterials, held on 5–19 May 2023 on sciforum.net (https://iocn2023.sciforum.net/). The scope of this Special Issue is to cover the whole breadth of nanomaterials research and provide a forum for presenting and discussing new results. Contributors are requested to submit papers and presentations from the field of nanomaterials, such as nanomaterials and nanostructures, 2D materials and graphene, nanoparticles and quantum dots, nanowires and nanotubes, nanobiology and nanomedicine, nanophotonics and plasmonics, nanoelectronics and nanodevices, nanoenergy and nanocatalysis, nanofabrication, and nanomanipulation.

Papers will be subjected to peer review and published with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications. We hope this conference series will turn out to be recognized as a novel means to (electronically) present the most recent advances in the area of nanomaterials.

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.

Tungsten oxide (WO3) and zinc oxide (ZnO) are n-type semiconductors with numerous applications in photocatalysis. The objective of this study was to synthesize and characterize different types of nanostructures (WO3, WO3-Mo, TiO2, and TiO2-ZnO) for a comparison of hybrid and pure nanostructures to use them as a photoanodes for photoelectrocatalytic degradation of emerging contaminants. With the aim of comparing the properties of both samples, field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM) and confocal laser-Raman spectroscopy were used to study the morphology, composition, and crystallinity, respectively. Electrochemical impedances, Mott-Schottky, and water splitting measurements were performed to compare the photoelectrochemical properties of photoanodes. Finally, the photoelectrocatalytic degradation of the pesticide Imazalil was carried out with the best optimized nanostructure (TiO2-ZnO). Full article
