Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2022) | Viewed by 28984
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
Interests: metal oxide nanomaterials; solid state inorganic/materials chemistry; optical spectroscopy; phosphors; scintillators; catalysts
The fundamental understanding and application exploration of metal oxide nanomaterials have been expanded extensively over the past couple of decades and continuously with global, creative and diligent work by researchers like you. However, there are no recent collections, such as books, connecting their fundamental aspects and application perspectives in a concise fashion to give a broad view of the current status of this fascinating field. Therefore, we invite authors to contribute either comprehensive review articles or original research articles covering the most recent progress and new developments in the fundamental understanding of the synthesis and properties and the exploration of the utilization of metal oxide nanomaterials. Review articles are preferred, while full papers and communications are also welcomed. Potential topics of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:
- Fundamental science of metal oxide nanomaterials, including their local, long-range and electronic structures, quantum-mechanicals, thermodynamics, defects, and traps characterized by sophisticated experimental techniques and state-of-the-art theory;
- Underlying principles and mechanisms of the physicochemical properties of metal oxide nanomaterials understood by experimental studies, theoretical calculations, and machine learning;
- Fundamentals on the synthesis of metal oxide nanomaterials, including and thermodynamic aspects that determine their growth modes and probing phase behavior and synthetic pathways via in situ techniques;
- Exemplary real-world applications of metal oxide nanomaterials as catalysts, photonics, sensors, electronics, sorbents, etc.
Thank you in advance for your contribution to making this Special Issue a success that consolidates current fundamental knowledge alongside practical applications of metal oxide nanomaterials. We hope that this will be one of the most comprehensive resources for researchers to draw from and build on.

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.
