Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

At the interface between nanomaterials and biological systems, an understanding of the interactions between them is of significant interest. Biomolecules, such as DNA, proteins, peptides, virus, enzymes, biopolymers, and others, have unique abilities to form hierarchical and ordered 1D, 2D, and 3D nanostructures and nanomaterials by molecular self-assembly in liquid, solid surface, and air–water interfaces. The resulting bionanomaterials may have potential applications as novel fibers, sensors, adhesives, energy generating and so on, that can be applied in the fields of biomedical engineering, tissue engineering, biosensors, nanotechnology, energy materials, and others. This Special Issue aims to collect and disseminate some of the most significant and recent contributions in the interdisciplinary area of bio-nanomaterials research. Both original research and review papers are welcome.

I am looking forward to your contributions to this Special Issue.

Best regards,

Prof. Dr. Ick-Soo Kim
Guest Editor

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.
