This Special Issue seeks submissions that address environmental applications and implications of nanotechnology. To make green nanotechnology, this Special Issue will focus on environmental applications of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) and biosynthesized nanomaterials (BNMs) such as inorganic nanoparticles synthesized by microorganisms, fungi, algae and plants. At the same time, we will also cover difference between ENMs and BNMs in terms of their environmental applications, behavior and effects including interactions between these nanomaterials and natural organic matter and their physicochemical transformation in aquatic environment.

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. Nanomaterials 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.
