Toxins are antigenic or non-antigenic substances from organic or inorganic origins causing disease in humans and animals, even when present in very low concentrations. Toxins affect the host cell’s physiological processes and plasma membrane integrity, causing cytotoxicity. Nanotechnology is the engineering and art of manipulating matter at a nanoscale level (1–100 nm), and many novel materials have been developed for potential applications in chemistry, biology, medicine, biotechnology, molecular engineering, and physics.
Toxins are stable molecules that are difficult to eliminate from foods and crops once they have been produced. Therefore, nanotechnology can be an important platform for the next wave of the development and transformation of the agro-food system for controlling microbial and toxin contamination.
This Special Issue of Toxins welcomes original research and review manuscripts focusing on both the scientific and technological aspect of nanotechnology in microbial (fungal and bacterial) toxins. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Novel antimicrobial/antitoxin nanomaterials
- Nanostructures for toxin detoxification
- Nanostructure materials for toxin adsorption
- Nanomaterials for toxin sensing/detection

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 double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Toxins 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 2400 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.
