The development and spreading of nanomaterials are leading to an authentic revolution in science and technology. Behaving differently from bulk materials, nanomaterials can be tuned in shape, composition, and dimensions, giving rise to a variety of physico-chemical features and properties. The biological and biomedical fields are taking great advantage of the use of nanomaterials, since these can act as probes, carriers, or scaffolds. Moreover, the possibility to combine more chemical features and moieties in the same nanosystem (e.g., nanocomposites, core–shell nanostructures, organic–inorganic hybrids) has opened new perspectives in the design of smart nanoplatforms which can be potentially used to obtain multifunctional devices.
The Special Issue “Exploitation of Multifunctional Nanomaterials for Biological Applications” will cover the synthesis, characterization, and cutting-edge biological applications of multifunctional nanomaterials, including new and green production strategies, multiplatforms for sensing and theragnostics, smart structural and functional nanosystems. Theory, design optimization, and mechanistic studies of nanomaterials–biomolecules interactions will be covered as well.
We are pleased to invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue. Full research papers, short communications, and review papers covering the aforementioned topics 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 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.
