Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are proud to announce a Special Issue, “Nanomaterials for Translational Applications”, in Nanomaterials (MDPI; IF 4.034) (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials) devoted to the 4th International Symposium on Nanoparticles, Nanomaterials and Applications (4thISN2A-2020) (http://www.isn2a2020.com/).

This Special Issue will select excellent papers from the oral (plenary, keynotes, and regular talks) and selected poster participations, and covers a very wide range of fields in nanomaterials applied in translational research, focusing on environmental, toxicological, imaging, drug delivery, new sustainable synthetic methods, and biomedical applications. We invite all the researchers to contribute original research articles, as well as review articles, to this Special 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.

Copper nanoparticles–enzyme biohybrid is a promising material for the remediation of contaminated waters, but its function is influenced by its effect on degradation organic pollutants. This study is the first investigation into the fast degradation of a high amount of Bisphenol A (BPA) in water at neutral pH and room temperature. Four different CuNPs biohybrids with different cu species and nanoparticle sizes were used as catalysts. The biohybrid [email protected], which contained Cu2O nanoparticles of around 10 nm size, showed excellent catalytic performance removing >95% BPA content (45 ppm) in an aqueous solution in 20 min in the presence of hydrogen peroxide at pH 8 using 1.5 g/L of a catalyst. The catalyst showed excellent stability and recyclability at these conditions. Full article
