The fabrication and commercialization of nanomaterials requires an understanding of their properties, biological interactions, and environmental impacts. The nanotechnology industry is very competitive and meets new and challenging opportunities every day, enabling a great applicability to a wide range of fields, from medicine to pharmacology, industry, food, and environmental sciences.
The main purpose of this Special Issue is to highlight recent applicative findings that support sustainable nanotechnology. The Special Issue will discuss the emerging topics concerning the design, synthesis, and application of nanomaterials, such as environmental impact, human health, safe production, oriented processing, efficient disposal, regulatory aspects for sustainable nanotechnologies, main applications to support sustainability, etc.
This Special Issue will also highlight the novel approaches related to the impact of various nanomaterials in environmental, medical, economic, and social fields.
