Nano/Microstructured Materials 2014

Description

Chemists are required to generate a diverse array of organic and inorganic molecules using eco-friendly conditions, including low cost and short reaction times. A primary driver of synthetic chemistry is, therefore, the development of efficient and environmentally benign synthetic protocols, as the pressure to produce the myriad of substances required by society in an eco-friendly fashion has continued to increase. Up to now, many works have been published on synthesis and characterization of various multidimensional micro/nanostructured materials via diverse synthesis methods. However, complex conditions and long synthesis time were required for most of these technologies.

Microwave assisted processing methods, as good examples, have developed for a variety of applications in organic and inorganic synthesis and transformations. There are many examples of the successful application of microwave-assisted green chemistry for synthesis of micro/nanostructured materials in the literature. The main goal of this special issue is to find rapid methods for synthesis of organic and inorganic micro/nanostructured materials, to maximize the efficient use of safer raw materials, and to reduce waste for fabrication of various micro/nanostructured materials. Original review and research articles including experimental, theoretical, or simulations works are invited.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Rapid, low-cost, and eco-friendly synthesis routes of micro/nanostructured materials
  • Utilizing advanced characterization techniques of nanostructured materials
  • Microwave-assisted routes for micro/nanostructured materials fabrication
  • Novel synthesis methods for synthesis of zero, one, and two dimensional micro/nanostructures
  • Green synthesis methods of nanomaterials, their benefits, and their capabilities for mass production
