The demands for new configurations of electrofunctional nanomaterials continue to grow, and novel approaches are being enabled by the advent of new electromaterials and novel fabrication strategies.
The combination of electrofunctional materials and textiles has led to the development of new capabilities in fabrics with the potential to change how athletes, patients, soldiers, first responders, and everyday consumers interact with their clothes and other garment products. The current generation of wearable electronics is typically standalone devices that are separately worn or in some cases attached to the garment. The advent of new nanomaterials strategies is poised to create a significant opportunity for seamlessly embedding wearable electronics into the fabric. Therefore, new wearable technologies are expected to have a transformative impact on opportunities related to electronic textile, energy storage, energy generation, sensing, actuation, and health monitoring applications.
The motivation behind this Special Issue is the observed growing interest in the design, fabrication, and application of electrofunctional nanomaterials for actuation, sensing, smart textiles and energy conversion in many fields. Energy harvesting/storage, actuators, force/pressure measurement, porosity or color variation, and sensors (movement, temperature, and chemicals) are some of these functionalities.
Considering your prominent contribution in this interesting research field, I would like to cordially invite you to submit a paper to this Special Issue through the webpage of the journal (“Advances in Electrofunctional Nanomaterials for Actuation, Sensing, Smart Textiles, and Energy Conversion”). The manuscript should be submitted online before 30 December 2021. The submitted manuscripts will then be fast track reviewed. I would very much appreciate it if you could let me know of your interest in the paper contribution at your earliest convenience. Research articles, review articles, perspectives, as well as communications and letters are also invited.

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.
