Materials Express (MEX) is a peer-reviewed multidisciplinary journal reporting emerging research on all aspects of materials science associated with all areas of physical sciences, engineering, biology and medical sciences. Cutting-edge research on the synthesis, characterization, chemical, physical and biological properties of a wide range of materials are covered for broad readership; from all research areas of physical sciences to life sciences. In particular, the journal aims to report advanced materials including biomaterials with interesting electronic, optical, mechanical, chemical and biological properties.

RESEARCH TOPICS COVERED (but not limited to):
  • Inorganic materials: ceramics, layered materials, microporous and mesoporous solids, zeolites, silicates, synthetic minerals, biogenic minerals, nanomaterials
  • Organic materials: organometallic precursors for thin films/ceramics, novel molecular solids and synthetic polymers with materials applications, polymer composites, liquid crystals, nanomaterials
  • Electrical properties: metals, alloys, semiconductors, superconductors, ionic conductors, electroceramics, dielectrics
  • Optical properties: luminescence, phosphorescence, laser action, nonlinear optics, photoconductivity, photochromism, photovoltaics, resists, glasses, amorphous semiconductors, optical modulation
  • Magnetic properties: ferro-, ferri- and antiferro-magnetism, organic magnetism, spintronics, magnetic bubbles and information storage
  • Chemical properties: ion exchange, molecular separation, functionalization, catalytic action, sensor action, electrochemistry, photo-electrochemistry
  • Structural properties: crystal growth and structure analysis, structure-defect analysis, ceramics, refractories, hard materials, protective coatings, composites, adhesives, prosthetic applications
  • Mechanical properties: strength, elasticity, plasticity, ductility, malleability, fracture, corrosion resistance
  • Computations/Simulations: theoretical physics and chemistry of materials, molecular dynamics simulations, electronic structure calculations
