Interaction of atmospheric pressure plasmas (APPs), driven by direct, alternating or radio frequency current, with liquids has gained a lot of interest in recent years because of the possibility of simple and versatile synthesis of different nanoparticles and nanocrystals, modification of their surfaces, or production of composite nanomaterials and alloys. Indeed, by contrast to conventional liquid phase synthesis methods, APPs operated in or in contact with liquids containing appropriate precursors and stabilizers are viable to produce nanoparticles and other nanoscale materials at ambient conditions in a fast, usually one-stage and scalable way. Minimizing the number of manipulations involved in the synthesis process and enhancing possibility of functionalization and size modification, methodology based on APP operated in different configurations and gases allows to fabricate safe and biocompatible nanomaterials that could be applied in many areas of biology, medicine and technology.In this context, the current Special Issue is dedicated to scientists and researchers dealing with fabrication of new nanoparticles and nanomaterials by APP-based methods and application of these materials in different areas of science and technology. Original research and review articles that seek to new developments in plasma synthesis of nanomaterials are highly welcome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:·
- plasma-mediated synthesis of nanoparticles and nanocrystals in liquid and gas phases along with characterization of structure and morphology of these nanomaterials
- fabrication of nanoparticles of tunable size and optical properties by controlling experimental conditions of APP-based systems
- application of APPs for modification of functionality and properties of nanomaterials
- application of nanometerials fabricated with the aid of plasma-based synthesis methods in biology, medicine and technology.
