Nanocomposites are advanced composites that include nanomaterials to improve properties for various applications. They are low-dimensional materials having one-, two-, or three-dimensional confinements, and possess superior optical, electronic, magnetic, thermal, or mechanical properties compared to their bulk material counterparts. The intriguing properties of nanomaterials continue to attract broad attention for developing new advanced materials with improved properties, further stimulating the research and development of functional nanocomposites. In this special issue, original research and review articles on developing functional nanocomposites for novel applications are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Development of nanocomposites with 0D nanomaterials (such as nanoparticles) and applications
- Development of nanocomposites with 1D nanomaterials (such as nanowires, nanotubes, nanorods, etc.) and applications
- Development of nanocomposites with 2D nanomaterials (such as nanosheets) and applications
- Theoretical simulations and modeling of design, fabrication, properties, mechanisms, as well as applications for advanced functional nanocomposites
- Review articles involving functional nanocomposites and their applications

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.
