Until now, nanotechnology had a notable impact on modern society by developing new and improved materials at a nanometric scale for various applications in the fields of technology, chemistry, farmacy, medicine, and so on. Today, one of the most pressing issues that requires finding solutions in the area of nanotechnology is the global health crisis. In the recent years, great efforts have been made in order to develop new materials that could be used in biomedical applications, such as drug delivery, tissue engineering, or as antimicrobial devices. Nanomaterials are often functionalized in order to improve their performances in specific applications. The aim of this Special Issue is to publish high quality research papers and review papers addressing the current and future advances on the preparation and characterization of coatings based on functional nanomaterials with biomedical applications. A particular focus of this Special Issue is disseminating the latest advances in the preparation of coatings based on functional nanomaterials for biomedical applications. Original research and reviews that have not yet been published or that are not currently under review by other journals or peer-reviewed conferences are invited.
In particular, topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Functionalized nanomaterials for biomedical applications
- Design and synthesis of coatings based on functional nanomaterials
- Physico-chemical characterization
- Biological properties

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. Coatings 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 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.
