Special Issue "Noble Metal Nanoparticles"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 November 2016)
Noble metal nanoparticles have attracted enormous attention due to their potential applications in several fields ranging from optoelectronics, sensors, catalysis and biotechnology to medicine. Their unique properties make them suitable to be used in advanced application fields, due to their size-dependence and easy surface functionalization. The purpose of this Special Issue is to highlight progress in the field of noble metal nanoparticles for advanced applications. We invite scientists to contribute their original research and review articles that cover the preparation and characterization of noble metal nanoparticles for applications in optoelectronics, sensors, and biotechnology.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Preparation and characterization of noble metal nanoparticles
- Functionalization of noble metal nanoparticles
- Applications in sensors, optoelectronics
- Applications in biotechnology, drug delivery, biocatalysis

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 1600 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.
