This Special Issue is focused on both fundamental and application aspects of the use of Nanomaterials in Mass Spectrometry.
- Nanomaterials as extraction tools/signal enhancers in mass spectrometry analysis of low-abundance species
- Development of MS sub-techniques based on nanomaterials, such as SALDI-MS, NALDI-MS, SELDI-MS, etc.
- Development of MS analysis protocols based on nanomaterials
- Imaging MALDI-ToF-MS based on nanoparticles as labels/markers
- Fundamentals of phenomena, such as nanoparticle ionization events, nanomaterial promotion of analyte’s ionization/desorption processes, nanoparticle-tissue interactions in MS applications, etc.
Studies specifically dealing with nanomaterials’ MS applications (in Food Science, Medicine, Omics fields, Materials Science, etc.) are also welcome.

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 1600 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.
