Special Issue Information
Among all the active actuation methods in microfluidic devices, magnetic fields have exhibited distinguished performance in instant and remote controllability without limitation on dielectric properties of the liquid. For the last few decades, the study of magnetic properties, for both solid and liquid materials, has attracted increasing attention, such as field generation by multifunctional electromagnets, magnetization of nanoparicles or microparticles, paramagnetic liquid, and so on. Interestingly, magneto microfluidics emerged at the fields of biological and biochemical devices, where the interaction among liquid, paramagnetic particles, diamagnetic cells, channel structure, and magnetization in general, and particularly the synchronization between particle migration and the localized magnetic moments, can lead to new phenomena and function and result in a high potential of technological applications, namely in sensors and actuators.
This Special Issue of Magnetochemistry aims to collect recent work devoted to the illustration of magnetically tunable properties or driven behavior in microfluidic devices, including but not limited to the configuration optimization, more comprehensive understanding on magnetization and flow, the span extension on versatile applications, namely in the topics listed below.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Magnetochemistry 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 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.
