Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanotechnology is a research field that has experienced enormous expansion and a rise in scientific interest in recent years. However, interest is also rising in the anthropogenic effect into the environment. Consequently, alternative efficient procedures for the synthesis of nanoparticles are also on the focus of research. Cost-effective nanoparticle synthesis pathways, using renewable resources or employing byproducts of other activities are attracting scientists’ interest, in line with a world immersed in the circular economy concept. The use of complex matrixes, sometimes not well defined, is not free of new scientific challenges and limitations. This Special Issue will describe green synthesis approaches for the preparation of metallic nanoparticles and their applications.

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.
