Special Issue "Evaluation of the Toxic and Ecotoxic Potential of Nanoparticles"

Interests: ecotoxicology; nanotoxicology; gut-microbiota
The extensive development of new applications involving the use of nanoparticles increases human exposure and their potential release into the environment. Due to their nanoscale-related properties, nanoparticles could react with any biological compartments and trigger deleterious effects. This raises the question of the outcomes associated with their exposure and underlines the importance of carefully evaluating their potential hazards to prevent negative health outcomes and impairing the functioning of ecosystems.
We are pleased to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue to publish relevant studies aiming to evaluate the toxic or ecotoxic potential of nanoparticles, in order to allow regulatory agencies to properly regulate the use of nanoparticles to further promote health and environmental safety.
This Special Issue is open to contributions within the field of nano-eco toxicology that emphasize the effects of various types of nanoparticles’ exposure toward relevant biological models. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Identification of (eco)toxic pathways associated with nanoparticle exposure in relevant biological models;
- Decipher the role of physicochemical properties of nanoparticles within the (eco)toxic responses;
- Studies promoting safe(r)-by-design approaches;
- Novel or relevant biological models to assess the (eco)toxic potential of nanoparticles.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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. Toxics 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 2600 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.
