Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Nanomaterials, in addition to their small size and increased surface area, possess unique physicochemical properties that enable specific applications that cannot be performed by either molecular species or bulk materials. In the past few years, we have witnessed significant advancements that demonstrate the advantages of colloidal nanomaterials for biomedical and water treatment applications. The intrinsic optical, magnetic, and electrical properties of inorganic nanoparticles can be tuned by engineering the size and shape of the inorganic core towards sensitive imaging in medicine and achieving the most effective therapeutic effects. The nanomaterials possessing specific surface chemistry and wettability are of high relevance for water treatment and contaminated site remediation. This Special Issue on ”Advances in Nanomaterials for Bioapplications and Water Treatment” aims to address the main successes and challenges in developing functional nanomaterials, not only regarding the chemical synthesis, surface functionalization, and characterization, but also in designing their functional properties for practical applications. Some examples of the topics within the scope of this Issue include the chemistry of nanosorbents, photocatalysis for water treatment, nanocarriers in medical diagnostics and drug delivery, and nanoenabled bioseparation.

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 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 2000 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.
