Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This issue is a continuation of the previous successful special issue "Nanotoxicology".

Nanomaterial science continues to advance with the generation of more complex nanostructures with exciting potential applications. There have been parallel advances in the biological sciences aimed at evaluating the biocompatibility of these novel nanoparticles. Over recent years, we have realized that evaluating nanoparticles and biological interactions is quite complex because local environmental conditions influences particle behavior, and thus biocompatibility. In order to advance the development of safer high performing products, we need to understand the structural basis for these dynamic behaviors.

In this Special Issue, we are especially interested in manuscripts that advance the understanding of the specific nanomaterials attributes that govern or influence nanomaterial behavior and biocompatibility. This Issue invites manuscripts ranging from understanding dynamic behaviors of particles in aqueous environment, cellular toxicity, whole animal toxicity, neurotoxicity, immunotoxicity, genotoxicity, and population scale effects. Manuscripts that define specific biological responses at the organismal, gene expression, proteomic, and genetic levels are also invited.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly 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 300 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
