Special Issue in Molecules: Environmental Nanotechnology
Nanotechnology includes the control of matter at the nanoscale, where unique phenomena and unusual properties enable novel applications. Nanotechnology applications are very broad, such as textile, renewable energy, biomedical, healthcare, environment, electronics, optics, agriculture, food science, manufacturing, and industrial. Nanoprocessing, nanofabrication, and nanomaterials have been key to enabling the development of nanotechnologies. These nanomaterials have unique properties due to their size, and are composed of organic and inorganic materials from natural or synthetic sources. As nanotechnology efforts continue to evolve, their geographical polarization becomes broader. For this reason, this Special Issue is dedicated to the current status of nanotechnology in the Americas, including all the different efforts in specific areas. The objective is to highlight and acknowledge the advances and challenges in the region of the Americas. Original research articles, reviews, or communications within the scope of nanotechnology and from researchers based at any university or scientific institution in the Americas are welcome.

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.
