Special Issue Information
It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I invite you to contribute to this Special Issue of Nanomaterials entitled: “New Challenges for Health and the Environment: The Role of Metal-Based Nanomaterials”.
Nanostructured metals are now widely used both in research and at an industrial level and in everyday use. In fact, their particular properties allow for advanced applications in the field of optoelectronics, sensors, and nanomedicine. Especially in recent years, their use has allowed leaps forward for the protection of the environment and health, yet many questions remain open regarding their safe use for humans and the environment.
This Special Issue aims to serve as an opportunity to collect experimental and theoretical research works that see nanostructured metals as protagonists, especially gold, silver, oxides, and composites, giving space to the design, preparation, characterization, simulations, and applications of these innovative and promising materials. Studies on their effects in the environmental, biological, and medical fields will also be welcome, trying to stimulate careful and proactive reflection.
I invite you to contribute to this opportunity for scientific discussion by sending a manuscript or a review to this Special Issue. Full papers, submissions, and reviews are all welcome.
Prof. Dr. Iole Venditti
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 2600 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.
