Special Issue "Biogenic Nanomaterials: Versatility and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2018
The last two decades have witnessed the fast growth of greener methodologies for the synthesis of different biogenically synthesized inorganic nanoparticles (NPs), nanomaterials and structures. These NPs may belong to various families, such as metallic, oxides and chalcogenides. Owing to the richness of the utilised resources, namely plants, fungi, bacteria and algae, their method of preparation and use, and the fine tuning of the experimental parameters, materials scientists have demonstrated the power and the versatility of these sustainable routes by controlling the features of the as-synthesized NPs, such as the shape, the size and the composition. These features are confirmed using several techniques of characterization, such as microscopies and spectroscopies. Besides being scalable and generally requiring benign, environmentally friendly process inputs and process conditions near ambient temperatures and pressures, these routes lead to the production of valuable nanomaterials possessing unique properties that may find applications in different fields, such as medicine and catalysis to name a few.
To this end, we extend this invitation to submit innovative research articles and reviews on subjects pertaining to biologically synthesized nanomaterials, structures or particles, their synthesis or scalable production methods, demonstrations of biogenic nanomaterial applications, or life cycle analysis.Dr. Clayton Jeffryes

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. Molecules 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.
