Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Natural or synthetic polymer-based nanomaterials offer a versatile platform with unique properties that make them promising candidates for various applications, especially in the fields of biomedicine and environmental science. The ability to tailor their properties, such as specific surface area, flexibility, high biological safety and, depending on the polymer, tailored (bio)degradation, allows for precise design and customization for specific functions, including drug delivery, imaging, and environmental remediation. These materials have opened up new possibilities for advanced technologies that can address complex challenges in healthcare and environmental sustainability.

This Special Issue focuses to present the wide field and the utilization of polymer-based nanomaterials for pharmaceutical, biomedical and environmental applications. We encourage authors to contribute original research articles and review articles covering the recent progress on polymer-based nanomaterials to present the potential of these materials in the above-mentioned fields.

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. Nanomaterials 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 2900 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.
