Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
With the emergence of engineered nanoparticles in a broad range of applications and in several consumer products, toxicological studies have demonstrated that these materials may exhibit complex cytotoxicity depending, among other reasons, on their chemical composition, surface charge states, size and shape, and physicochemical stability.
This Special Issue intends to focus on recently-engineered nanoparticles including semiconductor nanocrystals, iron oxide, graphene, carbon, gold, silver, silica, dendrimers, polymers, etc., exhibiting low toxicity. Synthetic processes, surface modifications, coatings, etc., developed to optimize the design of nanoparticles in view of decreasing their toxicity to biological systems are also of interest.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 semimonthly 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 2400 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.
