Advanced Nanoengineering Materials

Description

Nanocomposites are multicomponent materials where one of the components is a nanoscale addition. The purpose of this special issue is to publish high-quality research papers as well as review articles addressing recent advances on nanocomposites with reinforcements or matrices, inter alia, of nanoallotropes of carbon including nanotubes and graphene, mineral nanotubes, nanowires, nanobushes, nanoparticles, nanopowders, nanoframes, and other morphological forms. Expected nontypical properties result from the combination of each component. According to the matrix material, nanocomposites can be classified as follows: Ceramic matrix nanocomposites (CMNC), Metal matrix nanocomposites (MMNC), and Polymer matrix nanocomposites (PMNC).

In order to improve the properties of these materials, nanomaterial reinforcements are used, including mineral and carbon nanotubes, carbon nanoallotropes, nanowires, nanobushes, nanoparticles, nanopowders, and nanoframes. Nanoreinforcements can have different morphological forms and in terms of their shape can be, inter alia, linear, plate, and powder. These nanoreinforcements can implement or improve mechanical, thermal, optical, electrical, electronic, optoelectronic, magnetic, and catalytic properties, hydrophobic and hydrophilic balance, chemical stability, biocompatibility, specific properties for application in sensorics, medicine, and dentistry, and photovoltaics, for fuel cells and more. In terms of interests, there are also films and thin films composed of the aforementioned materialographic structure components, which together form layered composite materials. These materialographic structure components may also be a reinforcing matrix by others of them such as carbon nanotubes decorated with precious metal nanoparticles. Those are more sophisticated and tailored to the needs of research using the most advanced methods to harness all of the emerging opportunities ahead of this highly innovative group of nanostructured composite materials.

Original, high quality contributions that are not yet published or that are not currently under review by other journals or peer-reviewed conferences are sought.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Designing of new kinds of nanocomposites and products using advanced informatics technologies and artificial intelligence methods
  • Obtaining the advanced technologies and processes of nanocomposites and products
  • Application of advanced research methods of the structure and properties of nanocomposites
  • The areas of applications of the advanced nanocomposites
  • Development prospective of the advanced nanocomposites and their application areas
