Special Issue Information
Nowadays, we are witnessing remarkable developments in the field of polymer nanocomposites. The possibility of modifying polymer matrix systems by including organic, inorganic and/or hybrid fillers, consisting of individual 1D, 2D or/and 3D nano-entities that may re-assemble within the matrix, has allowed us to explore uncharted scientific effects, as well as to launch innovative domestic and industrial applications. Polymer nanocomposite films enable the development of improved batteries and fuel cells for cleaner energy production and storage, nanogenerators capable of harvesting energy, novel membranes or coatings for biomedical devices with both diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities, membranes for water purification, etc., that are biodegradable and sustainable, compatible with the implementation of a circular economy. This Special Issue aims to highlight the relevance of the polymer matrix structure on polymer-filler and filler-filler interactions at different structural levels ranging from the atomic to the nano/micro scale, and their impact on the resulting properties of the polymer nanocomposites. Special attention is focused on interface and surface effects and their modification induced by external actuation.
We are pleased to invite you to present your research related to the characterization, synergistic effects, synthesis routes and high-level performance of polymer nanocomposite films. We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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 2600 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.
