Design of Nanostructured Functional Materials for Advanced Applications

Rapid development of modern technologies creates a constant need for the design of new materials with a set of established and stable functional properties. Advanced functional materials can be referring to all materials that represent advances over the traditional one. Some properties of which; shape, electrical conductivity, mechanical properties, chemical properties, biological properties, etc. are responsive to its properties such as thermal, electrical, magnetic, mechanical, light etc. Most important types of functional materials are composed of metals, alloys and composites combined with other materials such as, ceramics, carbon, and polymers.

Advanced functional materials consist of two or more materials prepared using various manufacturing processes. They are used in different applications such as automotive, aerospace, marine, defense and medical sectors Advanced functional materials can be prepared by chemical methods such as electrochemical deposition and coating processes or physical methods such as casting, powder metallurgy, and surface modification techniques. Hence, significant attention has been given to develop advanced functional materials needed to best produce various products for end applications.

For this Collection, we will focus on the new fabrication techniques under research in the fields of advanced nanostructure functional materials. Hence, significant attention has been given to developing advanced functional materials and the advanced techniques needed to best produce various products for end applications. Original research articles, review articles and short communications are welcome. We look forward to receiving your contributions. Potential topics for submission include, are but not limited to, the following:

  • Nanostructure materials
  • Magnetic materials
  • Biomaterials
  • Polymers
