Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the past decade, nano-biotechnology has received extensive attention from researchers of biological and medical sciences, and considerable progress has been made, in particular, encompassing many cutting-edge research areas of nanophotonics and nano-optoelectronics with the development of opto-electronic nano-biocomposites. The opto-electronic nano-biocomposites are materials that incorporate different metals, metal oxides, or semiconductor-based nanoparticles into biocompatible organic or biomolecules, and they show a drastic improvement in optical properties and electrical or thermal conductivity so that they play important roles in nanoscale biomedical analysis and treatments of biomolecules and living cells. Thus, it would be very worthwhile to shed new light on the recent advances in the nano-biomaterials science and technology in our Special Issue entitled “New Opto-Electronic Nano-Biocomposites: Synthesis and Applications” of Nanomaterials. This Special Issue covers a wide range of following topics, including but not limited to 1) fabrication of opto-electronic nano-biocomposites; 2) their biomedical applications, including the development of diagnostic methods through in vitro and in vivo real-time sensing of biomolecules; 3) imaging and detection of single cells and biomolecules; 4) photo- and thermal-based cancer therapy/theragnosis; 5) nano-transportation systems of medicine. We welcome the many researchers in these interdisciplinary research fields to contribute original full articles, communications, or comprehensive review articles covering their latest works.

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.
