Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Gold nanoparticles have become one of the most widely used nanomaterials due to their unique optical, electronic, and physical properties. The range of applications for AuNPs is growing rapidly and includes electronics, sensors, diagnostics, solar cells, catalysis, nanoengineering, photodynamic therapy, and therapeutic agent delivery, among others.
This Special Issue will accept outstanding contributions related to the topic, “Synthesis and Applications of Gold Nanoparticles”, covering areas ranging from the basic concepts to the up-to-date results concerning the very promising use of gold nanoparticles, and hopefully reaching the widest audience possible. The topics include AuNP synthesis, conjugation with biological and biocompatible ligands, diagnostics, plasmon-based labeling and imaging, optical and electrochemical sensing, and therapy for various diseases. I warmly invite researchers involved in the broad areas of gold nanoparticle research to contribute original research papers or review articles to this Special Issue, presenting the current progress in this field.

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 2900 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.
