World-class research. Ultimate impact.
More on impact ›
The Nanomaterials section publishes high-quality fundamental and applied research related to the synthesis, assembly and characterization of functional nanomaterials and nanostructures. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Synthesis of nanostructured and nanoscale materials
• Self-assembly, directed self-assembly and molecular organization
• Functionalization of nanomaterials
• Engineering and characterization of functional nanomaterials
• Properties of nanomaterials and nanostructures
• Nanoparticles, nanoclusters and nanocrystals
• Nanotubes, nanowires, nanosheets
• Nanocomposites, hybrids and nanocrystalline materials
This section also encourages articles with a strong focus on the green synthesis and sustainable design of nanomaterials, as well as their application and commercialization across all areas. Articles with a strong focus on biomedical and environmental applications may be better suited to the sister Biomedical Nanotechnology and Environmental Nanotechnology sections within this journal.
Descriptive characterization studies and work solely reporting on toxicity, nano-bio interactions, regulatory approaches and risk assessment do not fall within the scope of this section.
Indexed in: coming soon
Nanomaterials welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, Methods, Mini Review, Original Research, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Nanomaterials, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Nanomaterials will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Nanotechnology.
