Special Issue "Advanced Biocompatible Nanomaterials"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 January 2021.
Interests: molecular and electronic structure of nanostructured materials carried out by state-of-the-art Synchrotron Radiation (SR)-induced techniques such as X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (SR-XPS), X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS), and Near-Edge X-ray Absorption Fine Structure spectroscopy (NEXAFS), as well as conventional XPS, UV–visible absorption and emission and FT-IR spectroscopies. Main topics of research are metal nanoparticles stabilized by organic molecules and biomolecules for technological applications and biocompatible materials for tissue engineering applications

A biomaterial is a system that has been engineered to take a form able to direct the course of diagnostic or therapeutic procedures by controlling its interactions with the living body. In this wide field of research, nanostructured biomaterials able to conjugate the chemico-physical properties typical of nano-objects with biocompatibility are appealing candidates to design and realize innovative materials for applications in biomedicine. Since the interactions arising at the interface between a biomaterial and the living body are of primary importance for the biomaterial applicability, the study of the chemical and molecular structure of the material surface is of outmost importance for developing innovative and functional biomaterials.
In this context, the aim of this Special Issue is to provide a peer-reviewed forum for the publication of original papers dealing with the most important issues regarding the design, production, and structural investigation of innovative biomaterials and covering the wide range of physical, biological, and chemical sciences that underpin the design of nanostructured biomaterials and the investigation of their surfaces as well as of the interactions occurring at the biomaterial–host interface.

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. Nanomaterials 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 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.
