Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

For the last 20 years, there has been growing public interest in nanotechnology. The possibility of using singular physicochemical properties at nanoscale is becoming more and more promising.

Nanoparticles have become the most important components in nanotechnology. Their small size combined with the possibility to functionalize their surfaces has paved the way for the development of new pharmaceutical solutions to solve long-standing medical problems.

Nanoparticles can provide novel interactions and promising applications with living systems in order to be used, for example, as cellular imagers; as nanovectors for gene therapy or as nanodrugs. To develop, produce, and use as soon as possible nanoparticles in medicine material scientists should also meet pharmaceutical criteria such as biocompatible formulations, scale-up production, and good manufacturing practices.

This Special Issue will focus on novel applications and synthesis routes of nanoparticles for pharmaceutics. This issue will collect work on recent advances in nanomedical applications and on new synthesis routes to produce nanoparticles. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

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 1800 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.
