Special Issue "Smart Nano-Devices"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2021.
Interests: Nanomachines, molecular gates, drug delivery, nanosensors, electrochemistry
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Smart nano-devices, including nanorobots, nanoelectronics and nanosensors, which are nanoscale devices designed to response to external stimuli (light, electrical and magnetic fields, ultrasounds), internal stimuli (enzyme activity, pH, redox) and internal and external stimuli (temperature), have attracted a great deal of attention over the past decade due their promising multiple applications in different fields such as in the medicine, sensing and environmental fields. For instance, at present, in the field of nanomedicine, smart nano-devices have successfully demonstrated to enhance the diffusion and control de release of the drug to target locations in comparison with passive drug delivery systems or, in the environmental field, they have improved the mixing and mass transfer, greatly enhancing the rate of various remediation processes.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials tittle “Smart nano-devices” will attempt to cover the recent advancements in the Smart nano-devices focused on the nanomaterials employed. Both reviews and original research articles are welcome.
If you have any suggestions that you would like to discuss beforehand, please feel free to contact us.
We look forward to and welcome your participation in this special issue.

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 2200 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.
