Special Issue "Carbon-Based Nanomaterials for Bone Regeneration"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (16 March 2020).
Interests: carbon nanomaterials; safety evaluation; nanobioscience; bone regeneration
Carbon nanomaterials have attracted a great deal of attention in the biological and medical science fields because of their unique physical and biological properties. Carbon nanomaterials possess high biocompatibility with bone tissue, and possible roles in bone regeneration have already been identified. Moreover, many composite materials developed using carbon nanomaterials are being tested as scaffolds and fillers for bone tissue regeneration. Since bony nonunion and large skeletal defects created by tumors, trauma, and congenital malformations are sometimes impossible to repair, clinicians are in need of innovative technologies for bone regeneration.
This Special Issue invites all manuscripts involving the direct effects of carbon nanomaterials and their composites in bone tissue and cells in vivo and in vitro, the availability of such materials for scafolding and filler material, and novel suggestions on their clinical implementation. Safety evaluations of the practical application of carbon nanomaterials are also welcome in this issue.

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.
