Special Issue "Lung Cell Toxicity of Metal-containing Nanoparticles"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (14 February 2020).
Interests: nanotoxicology; genotoxicity; dissolution/biosolubility; air–liquid interface exposure
Lung cell toxicity is a critical aspect in the field of nanotoxicology due to the fact that inhalation is an important exposure route. Among the various nanomaterials present in society, many contain metals. The metal-containing nanoparticles show differences in toxicity depending, e.g., on size, surface reactivity, and dissolution kinetics. The cellular effects include inflammation, genotoxicity, oxidative stress, and epigenetic alterations.
This Special Issue highlights recent advances in the understanding of lung cell toxicity of metal-containing nanoparticles. It focuses on mechanisms underlying toxicity, links to nanoparticle characteristics, in vitro–in vivo correlations, and novel methods, such as air–liquid interface exposures and the use of cocultures.
The Special Issue is open to original research articles as well as review papers that help researchers around the world understand the lung cell toxicity of metal-containing nanoparticles, with a focus on novel mechanisms and methods.

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.
