This Special Issue of ChemEngineering, entitled “TiO2 Nanoparticles: Synthesis and Applications” will focus on the publication of original manuscripts and critical reviews to advance the understanding of titanium dioxide or titania nanoparticles, which probably represent the most widely-investigated and applied inorganic materials, mainly due to their unique physicochemical properties. Industry is rapidly developing engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) that are applied in an increasingly wide variety of consumer and industrial products. Thanks to the unique physical and chemical properties of nanoparticles, it is possible to obtain innovative applications. Nanoparticles have novel properties (chemical, mechanical, optical, magnetic, etc.) compared to corresponding bulk materials, thanks to their small dimensions, which range approximately from 1 to 100 nm. Nanomaterials, and in particular nano TiO2, are currently being considered for use in modern technologies, with a huge range of applications, such as in medicine, electronics, building materials, commercial products and energy production. Design, synthesis and applications of nanotitania-based materials will be the focus of this Special Issue and particular attention will be given to contributions that will deal with aspects of sustainability in terms of lower impacts on the environment through the more efficient use of energy and resources.

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. ChemEngineering 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) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. 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.
