Publisher: Molecular Diversity Preservation International (MDPI)

Materials is an open-access journal of related scientific research and
technology development. It publishes reviews, regular research papers
(articles) and short communications. Our aim is to encourage scientists to
publish their experimental and theoretical details in as much detail as
possible. Therefore, there is no restriction on the length of the papers.
The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be

Materials provides a forum for publishing papers which advance the in-depth
understanding of the relationship between the structure, the properties or
the functions of all kinds of materials. Chemical syntheses, chemical
structures and mechanical, chemical, electronic, magnetic and optical
properties and various applications will be considered.

Topics Covered

* Class of materials include ceramics, glasses, polymers (plastics),
semiconductors, magnetic materials, medical implant materials and biological
materials, silica and carbon materials, metals and metallic alloys. All
kinds of functional materials including material for dentistry. Composites,
coatings and films, pigments. Classes of materials such as ionic crystals;
covalent crystals; metals; intermetallics.
* Materials science or materials engineering. Nanoscience and nanotechnology
will be considered also.
* Characterization techniques such as electron microscopy, x-ray
diffraction, calorimetry, nuclear microscopy (HEFIB), Rutherford
backscattering, neutron diffraction, etc.
* Fundamental research: Condensed matter physics and materials physics.
Continuum mechanics and statistics. Mechanics of materials. Tribology
(friction, lubrication and wear). Solid-state physics.

Several topical special issues will be published.
