Special Issue "Superparamagnetic Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 July 2019).
Superparamagnetic materials, composed of very small magnetic grains or nanoparticles, have been gaining increasing interest, especially for biomedical technologies. The interest has been stimulated by their numerous promising applications, such as in anticancer magnetic hyperthermia, magnetofection, magnetic resonance imaging, and also in the form of ferrofluids that may be used for liquid seals, efficient heat transfer and damping.
While various forms of iron oxide nanoparticles have been most commonly regarded as superparamagnetic materials also other doped metal oxides or zero valent metal nanoparticles have been found to exhibit superior superparamagnetic properties. Moreover, formation of functional coatings, as well as embedding the superparamagnetic nanoparticles into matrices, may be used to enhance or modify their properties for a given application.
In this Special Issue, we are calling for papers that report on the synthesis and characterization of superparamagnetic materials focusing on recent advances from fundamental research to applications. Original papers, as well as critical reviews, are very welcome.
It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue.

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. 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 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.
