Scientific quests and engineering applications have aroused a great deal of attention in the design and fabrication of nanoporous materials for various applications. The physically well-controlled nanoporous surfaces or materials, integrated with regulated chemical and mechanical properties, have demonstrated great potential in a wide range of applications, such as self-cleaning, hydrodynamic drag reduction, anti-biofouling, anticorrosion, anti-icing, heat transfer, and light trapping for automotive, aerospace and naval systems, power plant systems, consumer electronics and appliances, building materials, textiles, biomedical equipment, solar cells, and food containers. In addition, well-ordered nanoporous patterns can be used as scalable templates for the fabrication of nanomaterials and confined crystal growth with controlled orientation. This Special Issue seeks to highlight the current state of the art in the design, fabrication, and characterization of nanoporous surfaces/materials of various material types, including ceramics, metals, and polymers for the various scientific and engineering applications. It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Original research papers and review articles are all welcome.

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.
