Special Issue "Functional Magnetic Nanoparticles in Nanomedicine"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 April 2017)
Functional magnetic nanoparticles and their biomedical applications, such as targeted drug delivery, magnetic hyperthermia, magnetic labeling, magnetic resonance imaging, and biosensing, have generated growing interest in the world. Research on nanoparticles forms an interdisciplinary science field that involves physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering. Creating nanoparticles with properties that fulfill all the requirements (e.g., high saturation magnetization, zero remanent magnetization, biocompatibility, and no toxicity to humans) represents an important but challenging task.
This Special Issue is aimed at featuring recent and new developments in synthesis, characterization, and applications of magnetic nanoparticles and nanocomposites. Gaining a thorough understanding of the properties of nanoparticles under various conditions (before and after bio-polymer coatings) and the performance of nanoparticle based bio-devices from high quality review and research articles, as published in this Special Issue, will help to move forward in their real world 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. 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 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.
