Special Issue "Additive Manufacturing of Hybrid and Nanomaterials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2023) | Viewed by 2386
Additive manufacturing (AM) has emerged as a novel technique that can eliminate several design constraints posed by classical manufacturing methods while facilitating near-final shape production. The most appealing features of AM are the exclusion of molds and the forming of functionally gradient structures. Additive manufacturing has expanded into classical engineering materials including polymers, ceramics, metals, and composites. Several AM techniques such as fused deposition modeling (FDM) were utilized to manufacture a plethora of materials based on thermoplastic filaments and/or filaments with other materials, such as carbon black and chopped carbon fibers. Other methods, such as the direct write method (DWM), allow for the printing of materials starting from a viscous fluid (i.e., ink) phase. Despite the many advancements of AM, there are few studies that investigate the AM of nanomaterials or hybrid materials with nanophases. The objective of this Special Issue is to highlight the advantages that can be achieved by combining AM and nanomaterials toward producing multiscale, multifunctional materials. This Special Issue also sheds light on the challenges encountered in the AM of nanomaterials and nanocomposites.

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.
