Special Issue Information
Polymer-based nanocomposites have emerged in the last two decades as particularly promising materials for a wide range of applications in industry, environmental processes, biomedicine, energy production and storage, and electronics. The possibility of combining polymer and nanofiller properties in order to produce new materials with desirable physicochemical behavior, as well as controllable thermal, mechanical, and electrical responses, in a cost-effective manner is based on our ability to understand the structure-property relation stemming from the fundamental interactions between the different components at the nanoscale. For significant progress to be made on this ground, it is necessary that analytical theory, simulations, and experimental studies are utilized in a synergistic manner towards the establishment of well-defined protocols to predict static, dynamic, and thermodynamic properties under different physicochemical environments and external stimuli. On these grounds, this Special Issue encourages the submission of manuscripts which present new developments on the fabrication procedures, analytical descriptions, and computational models of such materials. Efforts which follow complementary experimental and/or theoretical/simulational approaches are particularly welcome.

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.
