Nanomagnetism and bionanomagnetism are fascinating domains at the nano level, through the special magnetic and biomagnetic aspects obtained compared to the bulk material, resulting mainly from the small size (1-100 nm) of physical nanostructures and bionanostructures. These fields are of great scientific interest today, both theoretically and in application, and have been developing explosively in recent years. The fundamental aspects in the fields of both theoretical and experimental nanomagnetism and bio-nanomagnetism, together with the methods and techniques of preparation and experimental investigation and applications in nanotechnology and bionanotechnology will be addressed in this special volume through a collection of papers on specific topics.
We are seeking research on the magnetism of magnetic nanostructures/nanomaterials and bio-nanostructures/nanomaterials. In particular, papers which will be accepted will deal with the following: Nanomagnetism and Bionanomagnetism (theory, experiment and computer simulation), Superparamagnetism, Magnetic properties of nanodimensional magnetic structures and biostructures, Magnetic behavior in static and dynamic fields (radio- and high frequency), Magnetic anisotropy, Magnetic relaxation, Superparamagnetic relaxation, Nanosize effects, Shape, surface, interactions, anisotropy and quantum effects, Advanced experimental methods, Magnetic nanostructures/ nanomaterials and bionanostructures/ bionanomaterials (magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs), magnetic nanocomposites, magnetic nanofluids, magnetic nanopowders, magnetic nanotubes, magnetic nanoclusters, magnetic nanowires, magnetic nanoemulsions, hybrid bionanomaterials (organic-inorganic), assembled magnetic bio-nanostructures, bioencapsulated, biosurfacted, covered with different organic agents/ biopolymers, decorated on surface, bioconjugated, biofunctionalized magnetic nanostructures, etc.), Characterization method of nanomaterials and bio-nanomaterials (IR-FTIR, DTA-TG, XPS, XRD, SEM, TEM and HR-TEM, AFM, ED, EDAX, DC magnetization curves, AC susceptibility, magnetometry, dc-SQUID magnetometer, magnetic resonance, Mössbauer spectroscopy, etc.), Design, synthesis and preparation methods, Nano-bioengineering of magnetic nanostructures, Biocompatibility and cytotoxicity, Nanotechnology and Bio-nanotechnology, Technical applications, Medical applications, inclusive in alternative cancer therapy (magnetic hyperthermia (MHT), drug delivery, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nanotheranostic etc.).
This Special Issue aims to make known the newest state-of-the-art results recently obtained in the fields of nanomagnetism and bionanomagnetism, and advanced applications in nano- and bionanotechnology.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
