Special Issue "Nanomaterials in Food Safety"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2017).
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims to explore the potential risks and benefits associated with the use of nanomaterials for food safety and quality assurance, as well as ensuring the integrity of the food supply chain.
Current research developments will be highlighted and potential applications to real world problems experienced within the food supply chain will be examined. The key areas to be addressed will include the use of nanomaterials as the basis of novel, rapid or inexpensive sensors, enhanced packaging performance for shelf life extension and as a mean of informing and protecting consumer health and wellbeing. Applications that deter or prevent criminal activity, such as food fraud, and protect the integrity of the supply chain are of particular interest.
