• Publishes original research articles, letters, reviews/mini- reviews and guest edited thematic issues on various topics related to natural products. Articles may be focused largely, but not exclusively, on contributions from China

Aims and Scope

The Nanomaterials section of the journal Current Chinese Science publishes original research articles, letters, reviews/mini-reviews, and guest-edited thematic issues in all areas of nanomaterials. Articles may be focused largely, but not exclusively, on contributions from China.


This section is not limited to a specific aspect of the field but is instead devoted to a wide range of sub-fields in the area. Articles of interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome. Submissions in the following nanomaterials areas are of special interest to the readers of this journal:


  • • Adhesion of nanostructures.
  • • Anti-adhesion on nanostructured surfaces.
  • • Anticorrosive performance of nanomaterials.
  • • Anti-reflection of nanostructured materials.
  • • Bioinspired, biomimetic, or bionic nanostructures, surfaces, and materials.
  • • Bubble transport on nanostructured surfaces.
  • • Coatings for anti-fogging, water-proof, anti-fingerprint, art-protecting, anti-icing, anticorrosive, self-cleaning, etc.
  • • Drag reduction via the design of nanostructures on surfaces.
  • • Droplet manipulation on nanostructured surfaces.
  • • Fog harvesting and atmosphere water harvesting or capturing of materials.
  • • Functions of nanomaterials, including electric, magnetic, optical, thermal properties, etc.
  • • Liquid controlling on nanochannel or microchannel.
  • • Methods used in the fabrication and design of nanostructures of different dimensions, including nanoparticles, nanofibers, nanowires, nanopores, etc.
  • • Solar-driven nanostructured materials for energy harvesting and fluid behavior.
  • • Surfaces with nanostructures for functions including wettability, gradient tension, energy, droplet transport, superhydrophobicity, antiicing, etc.
  • • Water repellency on nanopatterned surfaces.
  • • Others
