Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanopesticides are a novel class of plant protection products expected to bring many benefits to the current technology, such as better solubility, controlled release, less amount of pesticide used, protection against early degradation, improved uptake, and increased effectiveness. Nanopesticides have also been recently included in the IUPAC Top10 chemistry innovations that could change the world, and developing this trending field of research could provide a huge step forward to such a class of nanomaterials, which are already enjoying a boost in interest.

Scientists of diverse backgrounds (material science, inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, biology) are encouraged to contribute with cutting-edge research in this Special Issue of Nanomaterials, dedicated to the development of nanopesticides, their interaction with plants, and their applications to model and real cases.

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.
