Synthesis and Applications of Nanostructured Metals and Metal Oxides
Nanomaterials have been the frontrunners of the numerous technological advancements in this era of cutting-edge technology. Specifically, nanostructured metals and metal oxides exhibit unique size-tunable properties (e.g., optical, electronic, magnetic, catalytic, and mechanical properties). In addition, the pendant surface functionalities of metals and metal oxides-based nanomaterials also contribute to their interaction and effect on biological systems (e.g., nanotoxicity and drug delivery). As such, the aforementioned properties of metals and metal oxides account for their diverse applications such as environmental remediation (e.g., catalysis, gas sensing, energy storage, and energy harvesting), sensing of diverse targets (e.g., explosives, environmental pollutants, and pathogens), therapeutics (e.g., drug delivery and toxicity) and relevant applications in many other fields (e.g., cosmetics, textile, and food industries). In consideration of the diverse properties and applications of metals and metal oxides-based nanomaterials, we cordially invite you to contribute to this Topic entitled, “Synthesis and applications of nanostructured metals and metal oxides”. The major aim of this Topic is to collect very recent original and innovative reports (original research, communications, or review articles) and developments on the synthesis and applications of metals and metal oxides-based nanomaterials (e.g., noble metal nanoparticles, transition metals and metal oxides, and semiconductor inorganic nanocrystals). Prospective authors may consider the diverse applications of the above-mentioned categories of nanomaterials such as catalysis, sensing of diverse targets (e.g., environmental pollutants, microbes, pathogens, explosives, and many more), energy storage and harvesting, opto-electronics, therapeutics (e.g., drug delivery, diagnosis, and toxicity), and food preservation and food packaging.
