Magnetic properties of materials change drastically as the size decreases to the nanoscale. Understanding the new magnetic phenomena arising at the nanoscale constitutes not only an exciting field of fundamental research, but also an essential step towards the potential applications of these nanoparticles in diverse fields, such as life sciences, data storage or energy applications.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials is devoted to covering the recent advances on magnetic nanoparticles of metals and metal–oxide nanoparticles focused on potential biomedical applications. In this way, this issue will concern topics spanning from new preparation methods and characterization of magnetic nanoparticulate systems (e.g., magnetic fluids, nanoparticle-based architectures, bioinspired and biosynthesized magnetic nanoparticles, matrix-embedded nanoparticles) and the study of their associated magnetic phenomena (e.g., collective phenomena, relaxation processes, magnetic anisotropy), focused towards an understanding and optimized performance of the systems in biomedical uses (e.g., magnetic drug delivery, magnetic hyperthermia, magnetic particle imaging).

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.
