Call for Papers: Nanoarchitectonics for Functional Particles and Materials

December 2021


Nanotechnology successfully opened a door for explorations of science and technology from the atomic and molecular levels.  Nanoarchitectonics has emerged by assembling functional materials using nanoscale units based on the principles of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Nanoarchitectonics approaches are applicable to a wide range of targets including materials synthesis, creating hierarchical nanostructures, nanoscale devices, and generating nanostructure organization. They have relevance to catalysts, sensors, energy, environment, biomedicine and many other areas.

This Special Issue focuses on Nanoarchitectonics for Functional Particles and Materials including nano/micro particle synthesis with nanoscale unit components, and their assembling into various functional materials.

This Special Issue covers all the fields related to nanoarchitectonics, but special attention will be given to the following aspects:

  • Basic concepts for atomic and molecular architectures
  • Functional nanoparticles and nanostructures
  • Artificial intelligence for nanoarchitecture design
  • Experiments using atomic resolution measurements
  • Confluence with biostructures

Authors are welcome to submit their latest research in the form of original full articles or reviews on these topics.
