Chemical Functionalization, Self-Assembly, and Applications of Nanomaterials and Nanocomposites

Description

Using molecules and nanoparticles as fundamental building blocks to assemble materials with nanoscale precision represent one of the most important bottom-up approaches to nanotechnology. Nanomaterials and nanocomposites have held considerable interest for application in various areas due to their unique properties. The functionalization and bottom-up assemblies of nanomaterials and subsequent applications of well-defined micro/nanostructures have multiple important impacts upon nanoscience and nanotechnology. The detailed understanding and control of the driving force for the assembly process makes it possible to tailor the assembly process both at interface and in solution. The sophisticated nanostructures with multiple components have deepened the insight of nanomaterials and enriched the content of supramolecular chemistry. It can be predicted that as the growth of understanding of the rules in the nanoscale, our dream to manipulate molecules to achieve the precisely tailored organic/inorganic nanostructures could be realized in the future.

In this special issue, we invite the submission of original research articles as well as review articles that will focus on various nanoscale bottom-up assembly processes, functionalization, and their potential applications in wide fields. We are particularly interested in articles describing new nanostructured materials/composites and the regulation of their interesting properties. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Chemical functionalization of nanostructured materials and nanocomposites by chemically modified methods through various reactions
  • Bottom-up assembly techniques of nanostructured materials by LB films, LbL, gel, and other assembly methods
  • Preparation or synthesis of 1-, 2-, and 3-dimensional materials containing self-assembled organic, inorganic, or hybrid nanostructures
  • Characterization of nanostructures and nanocomposites by various spectral and morphological methods
  • Applications of self-assembled nanomaterials for catalytic, optical, environmental, medical, energy, and other field applications
  • Research progress of novel nanomaterials and nanocomposites in focus (quantum dot, graphene, etc.)

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jnm/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/author/submit/journals/jnm/chefu/ according to the following timetable:
