The present special topic 'Futuristic Nanomaterials and Composites: Part I' captures the structural as well as functional aspects of nanomaterials and nanocomposites that are unique in some specific way when compared to their microscale counterparts. The uniqueness of structural qualities covered includes enhanced fracture toughness and wear resistance, while uniqueness in functional aspects include enhanced thermal conductivity, electrical transport, in addition to nanoscale sensing and characterization capabilities. Synthesis and processing routes leading to the nanostructures involved are also discussed. Inspiration for this special topic is drawn from two conferences: (1) NANOSTRUC 2014: International Conference on Structural Nano Composites held in Madrid (Spain) on 20-21 May 2014 and (2) Nanocomposites III symposium of the TMS 2015 Annual Meeting & Exhibition held in Orlando, Florida (USA), on 15-19 March 2015. By linking these two events, this joint special topic manifests a trans-atlantic networking in the field of nanocomposites that will be further strengthened in upcoming events of both series.
