Inorganic nanoparticles have assumed a key role in many interdisciplinary fields, such as physics, engineering, and medicine. The present Special Issue addresses a broad variety of techniques, aiming at synthesizing inorganic nanoparticles by chemical reactions in liquid phase and physical processes, including precipitation, thermal dissociation, redox reactions, laser ablation, surface disaggregation, and other methods where chemistry and physics of nanoparticles production are strictly interconnected.
This choice is motivated by the need of finding new manufacturing protocols, matching both yield and reliability of the synthesis process with an improved quality of the final product in terms of shape, dimensions and stability of the nanosized phase.
We warmly invite all researchers interested in such a topic to present full papers, communications and reviews.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
