The use of metallic nanoparticles has dramatically increased over the years. This is due to the fact that they exhibit unique physical, chemical, and biological properties at nanoscale compared to their respective species at higher scales. The main properties that are related to a relatively larger surface area to the volume, increased reactivity or stability in a chemical process, enhanced mechanical strength, etc. make them very attractive to be used in a plethora of applications. As the use of nanoparticles increases, the concerns about their spread in the environment as well as the consequences in different biological media need to be addressed. Such complex challenges require the development of new tools that permit the monitoring of these species in different compartments as well as their evolution and/or transformation together with the toxicological implications.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
