Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Many advances in the field of medicine are strongly correlated with the use of nanomaterials, making nanomedicine an important field of study. Nowadays, nanomaterials are exploited for many applications, such as diagnosis and treatment, as they are able to induce antimicrobial and antitumoral activity and hyperthermia, ensure targeted bioaccumulation and internalisation, act as a contact agent or a smart carrier of a wide range of biologically active agents, etc.

Manuscripts dealing with nanomaterials belonging to the following classes are especially welcome: metal and oxide nanoparticles, micro- and mesoporous materials, carbonaceous materials, and phosphates. Papers focused on composite materials designed and manufactured using modern additive manufacturing methods for tissue engineering are also welcome. Three-dimensional printing, electrospinning and electrospraying, atomic layer deposition (ALD), spin coating, matrix-assisted pulsed-laser evaporation (MAPLE), and pulsed-laser deposition (PLD) are only some of the processing techniques able to generate nanomaterials with 0D, 1D, 2D, or even 3D structures. Short-, medium-, and long-term (nano)toxicity, multifunctionality, and personalised therapy are essential aspects of modern medicine; thus, manuscripts dealing with any of these topics are also encouraged.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Materials 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 2300 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.
