Special Issue Information
Metal nanoparticles continue to play a key role in developing smart nanostructures for applications in a wide variety of areas, including biology. Some of the significant challenges in designing such architectures relate to reproducibility in their synthesis and characterization using a variety of state-of-the-art techniques to develop a detailed understanding of the structure–property relationships, which could translate into higher efficacy in their intended applications. In this Special Issue we aim to develop a comprehensive survey on the recent fabrication and theoretical elaborations of metallic nanoparticles, including Fe, Ag, Au, Zn, Ti; efficacy in their surface functionalization, different methods for characterization to evaluate their unique properties, including electronic, magnetic, electrochemical and optical, and an exploration of their potential for applications in diagnostics, theranostics, sensors, electronic devices, etc. We invite all our colleagues working in the exciting field of nanotechnology to contribute their recent research findings in the format of a communication, full article, as well as reviews.Prof. Dr. Frédéric Lesage

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. Molecules 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.
