Engineered nanomaterials based on carbon show unprecedented promise in multiple areas of scientific and technological development. However, concerns regarding their safety have the potential to negatively affect their innovation potential. Over the last few years, in fact, we have learned a great deal about the cytotoxic, genotoxic and immunotoxic potential of certain carbon nanomaterials. We now recognize that material properties such as stiffness, biopersistency and size are contributing to their toxicity, but we still lack robust models explaining their mechanisms of action and toxicity potential. For this, new approaches combining chemistry, biology and data analytics and modelling urgently need to be established. In this Special Issue, we wish to focus on new insights into carbon nanomaterials’ mechanisms of action and their dependency on their intrinsic properties. We warmly welcome contributions in the areas of the in vivo, in vitro, and in silico toxicology of carbon nanomaterials, aiming to formulate models of nano–bio interactions.

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.
