Magnetic nanoparticles have attracted tremendous attention owing to their unique chemical and physical properties and because of their potential applications in various fields, such as drug delivery, magnetic resonance imaging, biomolecular sensors, bioseparations, magnetothermal therapy, and catalysis. The synthesis pathway of magnetic nanoparticles determines their size, morphology, shape, composition, structure, and magnetic properties. Consequently, special efforts have been devoted to developing different chemical, physical, and biological synthetic methods for preparing magnetic nanoparticles. Synthetic methods such as the sol–gel technique, layer pyrolysis, hydrothermal technique, microwave irradiation, microemulsion co-precipitation, sonolysis, gas phase deposition, electron beam lithography, and bacterial synthesis have been widely used in the preparation magnetic nanoparticles. Recently, various green biosynthetic methods have been applied in the preparation of magnetic nanoparticles using different plant extracts and biomolecules. This Special Issue of Applied Sciences aims to cover the recent advances in developing synthetic methods for the preparation of magnetic nanomaterials and their application.

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.
