In the last few decades, nanosized structures, usually ranging from 1–100 nm, were organized in four main categories: 0D, 1D, 2D, and 3D. These structures attracted the attention of scientific communities, which developed applications and implemented them in research areas, such as food sector, medical sector, environmental, and also socio-economical sector. The main purpose of this Special Issue is to highlight the current progress and the impact of metallic and metal oxide nanoparticles in the above mentioned research areas. This Special Issue aims to present novel approaches related to fabrication, characterization methods, properties, and applications of such nanostructures. Considering the fact that health-related applications are mostly investigated, this Special Issue will highlight the novel approaches related to the utility of metallic nanoparticles and metal oxide nanoparticles in drug delivery, drug targeting, cancer therapy, medical imaging, tissue engineering, cosmetics, dentistry, food preservation, water treatment and purification, nutrient delivery, food packaging, nanosensors, new pesticides, and other environmental applications.

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. Metals 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 1200 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.
