Call For Papers

Nanomaterials (IF 5.076, ISSN 2079-4991) is an international and interdisciplinary scholarly open access journal. It publishes reviews, regular research papers, communications, and short notes that are relevant to any field of study that involves nanomaterials, with respect to their science and application. Thus, theoretical and experimental articles will be accepted, along with articles that deal with the synthesis and use of nanomaterials. Articles that synthesize information from multiple fields, and which place discoveries within a broader context, will be preferred. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical research in as much detail as possible. Full experimental or methodical details, or both, must be provided for research articles. Computed data or files regarding the full details of the experimental procedure, if unable to be published in a normal way, can be deposited as supplementary material.

Nanomaterials is dedicated to a high scientific standard. All manuscripts undergo a rigorous reviewing process and decisions are based on the recommendations of independent reviewers.


Nanomaterials are materials with typical size features in the lower nanometer size range and characteristic mesoscopic properties; for example quantum size effects. These properties make them attractive objects of fundamental research and potential new applications. The scope of Nanomaterials covers the preparation, characterization and application of all nanomaterials.

The following examples may provide a guide to what will be covered (not exclusive):

        Nanoparticles, coatings and thin films, inorganic-organic hybrids and composites (i.e. MOFs), membranes, nano-alloys, quantum dots, self-assemblies, graphene, nanotubes, etc
        Synthesis of organic, inorganic, and hybrid nanomaterials
        Characterization of mesoscopic properties
        Modelling of nanomaterials and/or mesoscopic effects
        Any application of new nanomaterials or new application of nanomaterials

Special Issue on Nanotechnologies and Nanomaterials: Selected Papers from CCMR
Submission Date: 2022-09-30

Dear Colleagues, Nanomaterials research, the science and technologies for the generation, processing, and fabrication of materials, is where disciplines merge and where they diverge into a remarkable range of applications, from electronics to health care, which touch, or will soon touch, the lives of millions. The collaborative conference on materials research (CCMR) series aims to enable technological developments in the various fields of materials and to further the goal of unifying nanomaterials research in engineering, physics, biology, materials science, as well as chemistry and neuroscience. This Special Issue, “Nanotechnologies and Nanomaterials: Selected Papers from CCMR”, will contain the accepted papers presented during the CCMR series, related to ‘nanotechnologies and nanomaterials’. The selected papers will include nanomaterials preparation, modification, characterization, properties, and the applications of any compositions and morphologies, including carbon nanotubes, graphene, metal, oxide materials, polymer, molecules, nanoparticles, nanowires, quantum dots, etc. Prof. Dr. Jihoon Lee Dr. Ming-Yu Li Guest Editors Please send the title and abstract of your paper to the following e-mail addresses: (Ms. Sandra Ma); (MDPI - Nanomaterials)

Special Issue on Immune Responses to Nanomaterials for Biomedical Applications 2.0
Submission Date: 2022-10-25

Dear Colleagues, We decided with pleasure to Guest Editing the second issue on the subject "Immune Responses to Nanomaterials for Biomedical Applications" for several reasons. The number of novel nanodevices and nanomaterials with successful application is astonishingly growing. Their importance has been emphasized by the use of mRNA-new generation vaccine-nanocarriers for ceasing SARS-CoV-2 infection that led to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many nanomaterials are still on the research bench or at pre-clinical stage. More information on their interaction with the immune system is needed to drive future applications safely. We thought that a huge part of these nanotools require deep investigation to define an Adverse Outcome Pathway in Immunotoxicity (AOP) of nanomaterials to create safe-by-design nanotools for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Even synthetic or natural molecules which are biocompatible as a single-molecule compound could show completely different behavior once organized in nanostructures. Early nanoparticle-induced immune responses, such as complement opsonization, phagocytosis or hypersensitivity reactions using in vitro or in vivo models are the core of this comprehensive issue. Nevertheless, direct or indirect involvement of nanoparticle mediated effects on adaptive response will complete the topic. Especially, humoral responses to polymer nanoparticles or T cell mediated processing of protein viral-like particles. The present Special Issue is intended to provide information on the several interactions that the immune system has with nanomaterials developed to biomedical applications. Novel results on immune cell, tissue, or diverse animal models to unravel their inflammatory responses to nanomaterials will be welcomed, as well as critical review articles challenging the present knowledge and offering an expert platform to discussion.

Special Issue on Metallic and Metal Oxide Nanoparticles and Their Applications
Submission Date: 2121-12-31

Dear Colleagues, The impressive progress of nanobiotechnology enables the development of genuine and effective platforms for modern and specific applications. Metallic and metal oxide nanoparticles possess genuine size- and morphology-related tunable features, including physicochemical versatility, particular reactivity and surface chemistry, unique intrinsic functionality (mechanical behavior, thermal and magnetic features, optical and electric properties, catalytic activity), and specific biological effects (biocompatibility and non-immunogenicity, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity, antimicrobial and antitumor efficiency, restorative and regenerative potential). Such characteristics are beneficial for using metallic and metal oxide nanoparticles in environmental applications, the electronics and energy industry, the textile and the food industry, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products, anti-infective and anti-cancer therapy wound healing, and tissue engineering. We warmly invite you to contribute to this Special Issue on “Metallic and Metal Oxide Nanoparticles and Their Applications” with your most recent findings on nanosized and nanostructured systems based on noble metals, transition metals and metallic oxides, and quantum dots. Environmental sensing, pollution control, renewable energy sources, energy storage, optoelectronics and nanoelectronics, food preservation and packaging, and biomaterials and biomedical devices represent relevant topics of interest to this Special Issue. Keywords environmental protection and safety renewable and sustainable energy nanoelectronics and optoelectronics detection and (bio)sensing platforms protective and bioactive nanomaterials therapeutic nanomaterials
