Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The surface modification of inorganic nanoparticles is a motivating approach to tailor their bio-physicochemical and functional features. Many modification strategies (i.e., chemical and photochemical) are attracting a great deal of attention with the aim of realizing multifunctional nanomaterials with tunable size, morphology and surface composition, by coating with inorganic, organic or bioderived moieties.

This Special Issue will address topics concerning the chemical and photoinduced strategies capable of functionalizing the surface of inorganic nanoparticles, thus addressing their functionality for technological applications in various fields, such as nanomedicine, food packaging, optics and optoelectronic devices, semiconductor devices, textiles, cosmetics, agriculture, energy and catalysis.

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.
