Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Micro/nanoparticles (M&NPs) have attracted researchers’ interest due to their unique chemical and physical properties. Recent advances in the synthesis of M&NPs (metallic, metal oxide, silica, polymeric, lipid-based, supramolecular, colloidal, and carbon-based M&NPs) have offered exciting opportunities for many applications, such as catalysis, plasmonics, sensors, magnetism, drug delivery, and nanomedicine. The use of self-assembly for the synthesis or modification of M&NPs provides unlimited possibilities for designing nanomaterials with desired properties.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials “Design of Micro- and Nanoparticles: Self-Assembly and Application”, aims at collecting articles or reviews that highlight synthesis, modification, properties, and applications in various areas related to M&NPs. We would like to invite scientists of diverse backgrounds (material science, organic and inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, and biology) to contribute their works to this Special Issue.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following topics:
- The synthesis and application of micro/nanoparticles based on self-assembly
- Micro/nanoparticles surface functionalization
- Micro/nanoparticles interaction with biomolecules
- Design of novel hybrid organic-inorganic micro/nanoparticles
- The role of micro/nanoparticles in molecular recognition
- The studies of the biological activity and toxicity of micro/nanoparticles

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 2400 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.
