Special Issue on Plasma Based Nanomaterials and Their Applications
Submission Date: 2021-10-31

Dear Colleagues, Processing materials at nanoscale requires tiny entities as atoms, molecules, electrons, ions, and photons, and plasma is a way to produce and control them. Accordingly, a large number of plasma-based procedures, techniques, and instruments have been developed, where plasma imparts reactivity, directionality, charging to species performing the processing. Plasma processing, traditionally performed in vacuum and gas phase, was extended successfully in recent decades to atmospheric pressure and liquid phase. The goal of this issue is to explore the interrelation between plasma and materials across the atomic scale (plasma species, atoms, and molecules), nanoscale (individual nano-objects like nanoparticles, nanotubes, nanowires, nanosheets, nanocrystals, etc.), microscale (assembled nanostructures in thin films, layers, composites, hybrid nanomaterials), and macroscale (nanomaterial-based devices such as sensors, micro-actuators, electronic chips, micro-supercapacitors, membranes, etc.). A few examples of the envisaged topics are: - Plasma processes, systems and methods for nanomaterial fabrication and processing; - Carbon nanostructure fabrication (graphene, carbon nanowalls, nanotubes, fullerene, diamond nanocrystals, nanoparticles, etc.) by plasma and its applications; - Gas phase preparation of nanoparticles by plasma (PECVD and PVD methods, including laser ablation); - Magnetron sputtering gas aggregation (MSGA) processes for cluster and particle fabrication; - Hybrid nanomaterials and nanocomposites by plasma and laser processing and their applications; - Surface nanostructuration by plasma; - Preparation and processing of nanomaterials by plasma in liquid; - Fabrication and processing of nanomaterials and nanostructured materials by atmospheric pressure cold and thermal plasmas; - Devices and applications of plasma fabricated nanomaterials in engineering, energy, catalysis and photocatalysis, sensing, biology, medicine, and the environment. For further reading, please follow the link to the Special Issue Website at: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/plasma_applications We await your contribution in the topics above or other relevant topics with great interest.

Submission Date: 2021-10-31

Dear Colleagues, Biomass-based composite materials have recently attracted great attention in a variety of applications due to their abundant availability and inherent properties. Further, biomass-based composite materials have a low environmental impact. Different kinds of biomass have been investigated for the development of bio-composites. Further, the incorporation of nanomaterials with biomass-derived materials enhances the efficiency of bio-based composites. Bio-nanocomposites can be utilized as catalysts, adsorbents, and electrode/membrane material for the removal of emerging pollutants. However, there are many challenges associated with the selective removal of emerging pollutants and the environmental sustainability of bio-nanocomposites. Hence, there is a need for the development of efficient bio-based nanocomposites for the abatement of emerging pollutants. This Special Issue is focused on the synthesis of bio-based nanocomposites and their application for the treatment of emerging pollutants in wastewater. This Special Issue will gather original research papers and review papers related to bio-nanocomposite synthesis and the treatment of emerging pollutants using bio-nanocomposites.

Special Issue on Advance Nanomaterials for Tissue Engineering Applications
Submission Date: 2021-10-31

Dear Colleagues, The term “tissue engineering” was first mentioned in the 80s and since then researchers have tried to mimic nature to engineer tissues to replace organs or isolated biological structures. Most of these studies rely on a biomaterial as a scaffold, specific cells, and growth-stimulating signals. In the last few decades, various publications on the great achievement concerning different tissues have been published. Nevertheless, most of these publications are in vitro and have not yet been adopted in the clinical scenario. One major challenge in bringing the in vitro results into clinical dimensions is the lack of vascularization of tissue-engineered constructs. This Special Issue of Nanomaterials focuses on the following topics: Biomaterials for bone/muscle/skin/vessel tissue engineering Angiogenesis of tissue-engineered constructs Interaction of cells and biomaterials Biomaterials for organ tissue engineering Biomaterials with incorporated growth-stimulating signals In vivo tissue engineering models for bridging bench to bedside Please submit your article with the latest achievements in these fields to the journal.

Special Issue on Recent Advances of Upconversion Nanoparticles
Submission Date: 2021-10-31

Dear Colleagues, Lanthanide-doped upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) can convert multiple low-energy near infrared (NIR) photons into high-energy visible and ultraviolet (UV) light. Due to NIR light (650–950 nm and 1000–1350 nm) being able to efficiently pass through thick tissue, known as the “biological transparent window”, UCNPs are highly attractive as nanoprobes for biomolecular detection and imaging and as NIR photon transducers to deliver localized visible and UV emissions in live cells. The use of the intermediate-state energy levels of lanthanide ions as ladders to sequentially absorb multiple photons dramatically enhances photon upconversion efficiency compared to traditional upconversion methods. Many attributes, including large anti-Stokes shifts, narrow emission bandwidths, non-photobleaching and high biocompatibility, make UCNPs well suited for biological applications spanning ultra-sensitive bioassays, multimodal biomedical imaging, targeted delivery and photodynamic controlled release of genes and drugs, as well as having potential for photovoltaics, photocatalysis, security inks and displays. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/upconversion_nanoparticles This Special Issue aims to provide an overview of the recent developments in upconversion nanosystems, including but not limited to: Synthesis and morphology control of upconversion nanoparticles; Optical properties of upconversion nanoparticles; Single particle characterization of upconversion nanoparticles; Hybrid upconversion nanoparticles; Surface function of upconversion nanoparticles; Application of upconversion nanoparticles.

Special Issue on Targeted Nanoparticles for Photodynamic Therapy
Submission Date: 2021-10-31

Dear Colleagues, Photodynamic therapy is the use of a light-activated, oxygen-dependent photosensitizer to generate a localized area of tissue damage for the treatment of various conditions. Clinically, this has primarily been used for skin disorders and some cancers, and a wide variety of photosensitizers are approved for clinical use. In a preclinical setting, the combination of nanomaterials with photosensitizers has shown extraordinary promise for the enhancement of photodynamic therapy. Nanomaterials are typically less than 100 nm in size and are composed of any combination of ceramics, metals, carbon, polymers, or biomolecules. Their size provides them with unique properties and defines their interactions with biological systems in vivo. Nanomaterials have been used as carriers for photosensitizers to enhance delivery, as local sources for the activation of the molecule, and as adjuvant therapies that colocalize at the site of disease. Photodynamic therapy is a highly targeted therapy in that it requires the external application of intense light to activate the molecules during systemic delivery or topical application. A significant aspect, and arguably one of the greatest drawbacks, of PDT is the need for patients who have been administered photosensitizers to stay out of direct sunlight or other bright light for days or even weeks during therapy due to the ease of inducing skin reactions. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/targeted_nano_PDT This Special Issue is open to contributions regarding the nanomaterial enhancement of photodynamic therapy. These contributions may include (a) nanomaterial-based methods for increasing the activation of photosensitizers at the target site, (b) methods for increasing the accumulation of the photosensitizer at the target site, (c) novel nanoparticle-based photosensitizers, (d) studies related to the sequencing of the material and light dosing, and (e) studies related to the enhancement of the light dose provided to the targeted tissue either by enhanced depth penetration or the sparing of non-diseased tissue at the margin.

Submission Date: 2021-10-31

Special Issue "Nanostructured Materials for Adsorption" Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2021 Dear Colleagues, Nanostructured materials have progressively drawn the attention of a large part of the scientific community, in particular for their interfacial and sorption properties. The main characteristics of nanostructured materials are their ability to demonstrate enhanced adsorption efficiency because of their surface reactivity or their structured porosity. We invite investigators to submit papers that discuss the recent developments and results about materials exhibiting nanostructuration (nanoparticles, micro and/or mesoporous materials, lamellar materials, hierarchical adsorbents, hybrids materials, etc.) with regard to the modification of their adsorption properties (capacity, transport and diffusion, affinity and energy of interaction, confinement, etc.). Experimental as well as theoretical inquiries will be addressed, with new techniques, including local and dynamic developments, and the various types of progress in simulation (GCMC, DFT, and multiscale approaches). This includes adsorption in the gas phase or in the liquid phase, for applications in the fields of depollution, separation, purification, drug delivery, energy storage, CO2 capture, etc. Dr. Benedicte Prelot Dr. Fabrice Salles Guest Editors For more information: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/nano_adsorpt You could send the title and abstract of your paper to the following e-mail addresses: To: mirabelle.wang@mdpi.com (Ms. Mirabelle Wang)

Special Issue on Graphene-Based Materials for Cancer Therapy
Submission Date: 2021-10-31

Dear Colleagues, Graphene-based nanomaterials such as fullerenes, carbon nanotubes graphene oxide, and graphene quantum dots have shown great potential in revolutionizing the future of nanomedicine and biotechnology. Their outstanding physical and chemical properties and the presence of more reactive groups on the graphene surface, which allow the multimodal conjugation with different functional groups and biologically active molecules, make them ideal candidates for cancer diagnosis and treatment. These nanomaterials have been conjugated with drugs and also labeled with tumor-targeting ligands, which are able to specifically recognize cancer receptors exposed on cancer cells, thus allowing a more efficient targeted delivery of anticancer agents while minimizing their distribution in healthy tissues. Graphene-based materials have been also investigated for the development of new imaging agents for the in vitro and in vivo diagnosis of several types of cancer as well as for the development of biosensors for the identification of specific cancer bio-markers. “Graphene-based materials for cancer therapy” aims at collecting full papers communications and reviews that prominently demonstrate the continuous efforts in developing advanced, graphene-based nanomaterials for cancer treatment and diagnosis. This Special Issue aims to cover a broad range of subjects, from nanomaterials synthesis to the design and development of nanostructures to be used as drug delivery systems, biosensors, and imaging agents for cancer treatment. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/graphene_cancer Keywords graphene-based materials anticancer therapy drug delivery systems imaging agents biosensors Prof. Daniela Iannazzo Prof. Alessandro Pistone Guest Editors

Special Issue on Multicore Magnetic Nanoparticles for Biomedical Applications
Submission Date: 2021-10-31

Dear Colleagues, Magnetic nanoparticles, including metallic (iron, cobalt), alloy (iron–platinum, iron–cobalt) or iron oxide (magnetite, maghemite or ferrite phase) exhibit a singular property called superparamagnetism. The nanoscale size of these nanoparticles makes their superparamagnetic properties both size- and shape-dependent. In addition to these two parameters, the presence of magnetic interactions between nanoparticles induce a new magnetic state. This is especially true for multicore magnetic nanoassemblies. Multicore nanoassemblies include magnetic nanoparticles embedded or decorating organic, polymer or biological matrices. In these structures, the number of interacting nanoparticles and the distances between them can lead to two new magnetic orders: superspin glass and super(ferro/ferri)-magnetic state. In the first case, the nanoparticles are in dipolar interactions, which induces a strong spin-frustation. The second case is characterized by nanoparticles in exchange coupling, causing a collective magnetic order. This Special Issue of Nanomaterials, “Multicore Magnetic Nanoparticles for Biomedical Applications”, aims to highlight how interparticle interactions affect the properties of multicore nanoassemblies labeled for biomedical application. The topic covers a wide range of biomedical applications, including but not limited to magnetic fluid hyperthermia, magnetic resonance imaging, on-demand drug delivery or magnetic particle imaging. The format of the expected contributions includes communications, articles or reviews. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/multicore_magnetic_bio Keywords Magnetic multicore nanoparticles Superferri–superferromagnetic nanoparticles Interparticle magnetic Interaction Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) Magnetic fluid hyperthermia (MFH) Magnetic particle imaging (MPI) On-demand drug delivery systems Dr. Lenaic Lartigue Guest Editor

Special Issue on Multifunctional Harmonic Nanoparticles: Synthesis, Optical Properties and Recent Applications in Bio-Imaging
Submission Date: 2021-10-31

Dear Colleagues, Non-centrosymmetric metal oxide nanocrystals, also called “harmonic nanoparticles” (HNPs) because of the great richness of their non-linear optical (NLO) response, have attracted substantial interest over the last decade as new exogenous bio-labeling probes as they can be excited in the three biological transparency windows, circumventing the limitations (low penetration depth, photo-bleaching, blinking, optically resonant conditions, etc.) of most fluorescent probes. Based on the known NLO performances of their bulk counterparts, BaTiO3, KTiOPO4 (KTP) and LiNbO3 nanocrystals were first developed and used for several bio-imaging proof-of-concept studies. More recently, other nanocrystals such as BiFeO3, ZnO, La(IO3)3, KNbO3, etc., have been synthesized and studied with the goal of better assessing their spectral NLO response (second, third, or higher-order harmonic generation), increasing their biocompatibility and adding new optical and chemical functionalities. In terms of synthesis methods, various solution-based techniques have been tested, but challenges are still ahead as understanding/controlling the nucleation and growth mechanisms is a prerequisite to the large-scale preparation of HNPs showing size and shape control (in the 5-500 nm range), high crystal quality, colloidal stability, and well-characterized optical properties. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/nanoparticles_bioimaging This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will highlight different aspects of HNPs spanning from their chemical preparation to their specific optical properties but will also focus on more recent breakthroughs. Research articles and reviews can thus address (but are not limited to) the wet-chemical routes leading to the HNP synthesis, their growth mechanisms, the preparation of new non-centrosymmetric hosts, the incorporation of luminescent species opening additional properties like up-conversion processes, scattering of harmonic signals from suspensions or at the single-particle level, Mie and plasmonic resonances, surface functionalization, bio-imaging, and multi-photon microscopy studies.

Special Issue on Applications of Fractional Nanofluids in Chemical Processes
Submission Date: 2021-10-31

Dear Colleagues, Due to low thermal conductivity, conventional fluids like water, ethylene glycol, and oil have a restricted cooling performance. This restricted cooling performance can be determined by the addition of a small amount of nanosolid particles with high heat transfer performance to the traditional fluid to form so-called nanofluids. Typically, particles in such nanofluids have dimensions ranging from 1 to 100 nm and take the form of metals, oxides, carbides, nitrides, or nonmetals. There are several engineering and physical applications of heat transfer in nanofluid are such as engine cooling, refrigerators, chillers, microelectronics, fuel cells, etc. The recent research shows that nanofluids synthesized by chemical solution methods have both higher conductivity enhancement and better stability than those produced by the other methods. With the development of nanofluids, there is increasing interest in using nanofluids in environmental sectors, especially in chemical treatment. Nanofluids are not strong oxidants and are not expected to produce harmful disinfection byproducts. Nanofluids exhibit good disinfection properties against a wide range of bacteria, including Gram-negative, Gram-positive, and spore-forming bacteria. Several patents disclose the typically used types of nanofluids and their possible disinfection/decontamination mechanisms. Recently, mathematical modeling of nanofluids, representing a novel class of chemical processes that play a vital role in industries and environment, has been widely considered by researchers with attractive and useful applications. Usually, these models are represented in terms of traditional integer-order partial differential equations (PDEs). Note that the traditional PDEs cannot decode the complex behavior of physical chemical processes and memory effects. To address these defects, researchers have focused on fractional dynamic systems of fractional nonfluids in water-cleaning processes. Topics: Fractional nanofluids in chemical processes with singular/nonsingular kernels Water process in hybrid nanofluids with (singular/nonsingular and local/nonlocal) kernels Innovative fractional applications in nanotechnology, wastewater, filtration, photocatalysis, sensor, and antimicrobial nanomaterials Wastewater treatment, nanoengineered material, membrane technology, nanosorbents, adsorption, and metal oxides with new fractional derivatives Application of reverse osmosis, water softening, water treatment, membranes, and fouling in fractional hybrid nanofluids Numerical and analytical solutions in chemical processes of fractional problems for different geometries Mathematical models of fractional hybrid nanofluids in materials and bioscience Role of fractional hybrid nanofluids in adsorption, activated carbon, wastewater, and central composite design Dr. Ali Ahmadian Prof. Dr. Massimiliano Ferrara Prof. Dr. Abdon Atangana Prof. Soheil Salahshour Guest Editors You could send the title and abstract of your paper to the following e-mail addresses: To: alisa.si@mdpi.com (Ms. Alisa Si); nanomaterials@mdpi.com (MDPI - Nanomaterials) https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/Fractional_Nanofluids_Chemical

Special Issue on Nanotechnologies for Biomedical Applications in Biosensors and Devices
Submission Date: 2021-10-31

Dear Colleagues, The evolution of healthcare technologies in the last decade has shown a strong increase in contribution from the diagnosis segment, with applications ranging from the detection of diseases to the design of therapy. This includes biosensors that are used in a range of contexts, including point of care testing, wearable devices, implantable devices and those used in centralized laboratories and hospitals. The evolving demands of biosensing in these contexts have placed increasing demands on sensitivity, measurement throughput, reliability and information content, with the nature of such information increasingly sought at the molecular level, and specifically to individual patients. Nanotechnology has a huge and compelling role to play in meeting these demands, through highly sensitive transducers, miniaturized sensor footprints, improved analyte mass transport to surface, reducing reagent consumption, and improved opportunities for multiplexed detection. The need for biosensors for biomedical applications goes beyond the needs for patient sample analysis, into domains such as monitoring the response of in vitro, organ or organoid models for toxicity testing, the discovery of biomarkers and drugs, and enabling the rational development of novel vaccines. The scope of this Special Issue covers different facets of the development of nanoscale technologies for biomedical sensing devices, that push the boundaries of the state of the art, in the format of full papers, communications and reviews, in any of the following directions: Nanofabrication technologies in application to biosensors (either demonstrated or with potential benefits for enhanced analytical performance) Fundamental investigation of nanostructure properties that have potential to impact biosensing performance in electrochemical, optical, mechanical or other transduction schemes Modelling and simulations enabling the rational design of biosensors Investigation of the impact of engineered nanostructures on the outcome of biomolecular interactions, or biosensing performance Novel approaches to multi-analyte sensing Surface functionalization approaches that enable better bio-sensing performance Approaches that address challenges in the integration of nanostructures within biosensing devices Accepted papers are published in the joint Special Issue in Nanomaterials (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/biomedical_biosensors_device) or Nanomanufacturing (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomanufacturing/special_issues/biomedical_biosensors_device_nano).

Special Issue on Progress in Quantum-Computer Calculations
Submission Date: 2021-11-30

Dear colleagues, Electronic structure calculations have become an indispensable theoretical tool in physics, chemistry, and materials science. After four decades of rapid development, these calculations now allow us to study systems consisting of up to a few thousands of atoms. Further upscaling to yet bigger systems, such as those encountered in nanoparticles and other nanosystems, is all too often hindered by limited computer power of classical (super-)computers. Fortunately, there is a newly emerging class of quantum computers that should soon provide an exponentially higher computer power. Albeit promising, quantum computers are still in their infancy, and basic algorithms need to be developed.

Special Issue on Health, Environment and Nanosafety
Submission Date: 2021-11-30

Dear Colleagues, In recent years, the development of nanotechnology and the use of nanomaterials have experienced exponential growth, and it is estimated that by 2022 the market of these nanomaterials may reach revenue of 9.1 billion USD in Europe only. In 2018 there were more than 11,000 new applications for patents related to nanotechnology in the United States and more than 1,700 in the European Office of Patents. The history has shown us that different types of particulate matter and their byproducts are related to seriously deleterious effects such as lung fibrosis, vascular effects, and cancer. Although our understanding of toxicity caused by nanoparticles has increased, there is still a large gap between the development of new nanomaterials and the ability to test for their safety for the environment, end-users and those involved in their production. In order to have a better understanding of the efforts related to evaluate how safe are already existing and new materials, and how to design new materials that are safe starting from the design, we are launching a special issue on Nanosafety, making special emphasis on health and environment.

Special Issue on The Role of Nanostructured Materials in Energy Related Systems
Submission Date: 2021-11-30

Dear Colleagues, In the field of electrochemical energy storage (batteries) the components, that is, anode, cathode and even the electrolytes (solid-state), the rational design of nanostructures and nanomaterials is required to achieve optimal battery performance. Nanostructurization of these materials improves the conduction paths of the ions involved in the charge/discharge process (e.g. Li+, Na+, Mg2+, Ca2+, Al3+), increasing the electrochemical surface area while improving the electronic conductivity, critical variables in the development of high energy density batteries related to the operational requirements for applications such as hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and electric vehicles (EVs). In this sense, in an attempt to fulfill a demand for other clean forms of sustainable and renewable energies, the hydrogen storage and hydrogen production technologies have undergone a rapid growth, like for instance the study of photocatalytic reactions to produce hydrogen, need it in the alternative and promising energy-generation systems known as PEM fuel cells. Although, issues still overwhelm the synthetized catalytic materials employed in these systems, namely durability and performance/cost, usually ascribed to their nanostructure, composition and surface morphology; characteristics that have to endure the harsh conditions occurring in a regular workload during the electrochemical cycling. Different kind of architectures, including nanoparticles, nanorods, nanoneedles, nanowires, nanotubes, 2D nanomaterials or single atoms, either in their pure form or in composites (interconnecting the active material and the carbon source or by confining small molecules in those nanostructures) had been studied vastly. These nanomaterials not only are built with purposes to meet the specifications mentioned earlier but also to give the material a greater chemical/electrochemical and thermal stability for longer life span in batteries, fuel cells or catalytic converters. It is our pleasure to host this special issue which aims to reunite a collection of works concerning recent advances in nanomaterials for applications in energy storage, conversion and generation where the relationship between nanostructure and their physical and chemical properties is highlighted. In other words, research describing the influence of the structure and the materials behavior at the nano level in electro-catalysis, photo-electro catalytic energy conversion, solid state ionics, electrochemical energy storage and other energy-related systems is welcome. This includes reports on novel synthesis, related advanced characterizations, theoretical calculations or simulations of nano engineered materials and nanostructured systems with better functionality for energy-related applications.

Submission Date: 2021-11-30

Dear Colleagues, Ever since the Nobel Prize was awarded in 2010 to Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov “for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene”, the number of research contributions including graphene in one way or another has grown exponentially, taking many different directions in search of new promising applications of these fascinating two-dimensional (2D) materials. Although there are now an increasing number of 2D layers that are not produced from graphene or graphite, there is still a rather wide group of materials that can be related to graphene because of the presence of polyaromatic units or because of the reaction of the original substance with several functional groups that eventually lead to the modification of the structure in different scales. In the first case, among others, the family of graphynes is now very popular, and also holey graphenes, in which holes or pores of different dimensions and geometries can be tailored by removing a large amount of atoms or “rings” from the 2D plane. The presence of the pores together with the possible presence of different functional groups makes these porous derivatives very attractive for several applications, ranging from electronic and energy storage to their use as filters at the molecular level or as an interesting tool for molecular recognition. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/porous_graphene If we include multilayered compounds, graphene flakes, and carbon nanotubes, the research possibilities offered by what we can consider in one way or another nanoporous derivatives of graphene is very large, and we welcome articles, communications, and reviews that can be included under all these types of exciting nanoporous materials, together with their description, fabrication or applications in any field.

Dear Colleagues, Biomaterials that are natural, naturally-derived or chemically-modified represent a class of compounds that are both unique as source of substrates and present themselves as an adaptable platform substance for functional and structural improvement. The array of compounds is limited only by the imagination as the pool of natural and available materials is vast. Substrates range in diversity from biosurfactant lipids and crosslinked-polysaccharides to metallo-proteins and bio-organosilicates or apatites, and calcium carbonate-based aragonite. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/nanostructured_biomaterials The applications of these compounds can range from nano-sized and coarse dispersion carriers for therapeutics, direct functional agents, and tissue replacement or bio-integrated implants, to functional biosensors, as in the case of photo-sensitisers, enzymes, and cell redox agents. The surface patterning and association of nanostructured biomaterial (NB) components can provide an array of different shapes, forms, and opportunities for constructs facilitating active-agent inclusion. Some of the more unusual applications of NBs have included intraocular lens materials, artificial ligaments, and dental implants. The most common biomaterial on the planet is cellulose. Various natural or synthetic cellulose derivatives or similar biomaterials, such as chitin, represent huge opportunities for crafting soft matter assemblies, supramolecular structures, and structural or fibrous materials.

Special Issue on Graphene for Electronics
Submission Date: 2021-11-30

Dear Colleagues, Graphene is an allotrope of carbon consisting of a single layer of atoms arranged in a two-dimensional (2D) honeycomb lattice. Graphene’s unique properties of thinness and conductivity have led to global research into its applications as a semiconductor. With the ability to well conduct electricity at room temperature, graphene semiconductors could easily be implemented into the existing semiconductor technologies and, in some cases, successfully compete with the traditional ones, such as silicon. Research has already shown that graphene chips are much faster than existing ones made from silicon. The world’s smallest transistor was manufactured using graphene. Flexible, wearable electronics may take advantage of graphene’s mechanical properties, as well as its conductivity, to create bendable touch screens for phones and tablets, for example. On the other hand, the physics of graphene and graphene-based systems has inspired the application (and development) of many advanced theoretical methods, including those outside the scope of traditional condensed matter physics. Graphene thus turned into the favorite benchmark of theorists. Fundamental studies went hand in hand with the applied ones and, in some cases, the former even opened doors to possible applications. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/graphene_electronic This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will attempt to cover recent studies, both theoretical and experimental, that advance our understanding of graphene and may be relevant to graphene electronics. This includes (but is not limited to) studies of the processing, modification, and characterization of graphene and other 2D layered materials, studies of the mechanical, transport, magnetic, and optical properties of graphene, and studies of graphene-based electronic devices and structures.

Special Issue on Recent Functionalization Approaches to Enhance the Applicability of Carbon Nanostructures
Submission Date: 2021-11-30

Dear Colleagues, Carbon nanomaterials (nanotubes, graphene, fullerenes, nanodots, nanodiamonds, and their derivates) have attracted significant interest from science and industry. Their excellent properties make them promising materials in many application fields. Modification of their surfaces with functional groups offers the opportunity to enhance their chemical and physical properties. For instance, chemical functionalization can improve their solubility in most solvents and prevent their aggregation. More importantly, surface modification decreases their toxicity and improves biocompatibility, showing potential for biomedical applications. Often, these transformations require tedious and harsh treatments that can alter the carbon nanostructure’s lattice and therefore modify their properties. This Special Issue aims to compile new functionalization approaches that expand the applications of these nanomaterials, including mild and environmental conditions, and non-conventional methods such as microwave irradiation, mechano-chemistry, or laser technologies. Alternative reaction media, such as ionic liquids, fluorinated solvents, or supercritical fluids, will also be included.

Special Issue on Physiological and Molecular Responses of Plants to Engineered Nanomaterials
Submission Date: 2021-12-15

Dear Colleagues, Nanomaterials are at the forefront of scientific research in many fields. Scientists involved in plant physiology and molecular biology are working hard to understand the effects of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) from mechanistic and applicative points of view. It has been established that the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is the predominant way in which ENMs exert their negative impacts on plant cells and plants as whole organisms. It has also been established that chloroplasts and mitochondria are among the first targets of the ENMs once they enter inside the cell, therefore, compromising photosynthesis and respiration. However, not all the ENMs have detrimental effects on plants, some of them have been found to stimulate growth and to limit parasite infections. Hence there is a flip side to the possible utilization of ENMs in the field of plant biology. It is possible to use some of them in agriculture to substitute the standard methods of fertilization to limit the waste of macro- and micro-nutrients utilized as fertilizers so far. Plant physiology and molecular biology are called on to clarify all these different interactions of plants with the different types of ENMs in comparison to their respective salts and bulk materials to discover new mechanisms of interaction between plants and ENMs and to clarify those already known. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/plants_engineered_nanomaterials Keywords: Engineered nanomaterials (ENMs); Reactive oxygen species (ROS); Cell membranes; Chloroplast; Mitochondrion; Use in agriculture; Plant physiology; Plant molecular biology; Plant chemistry.

Special Issue on Advances in Electrofunctional Nanomaterials for Actuation, Sensing, Smart Textiles and Energy Conversion
Submission Date: 2021-12-30

Dear Colleague, The demands for new configurations of electrofunctional nanomaterials continue to grow, and novel approaches are being enabled by the advent of new electromaterials and novel fabrication strategies. The combination of electrofunctional materials and textiles has led to the development of new capabilities in fabrics with the potential to change how athletes, patients, soldiers, first responders, and everyday consumers interact with their clothes and other garment products. The current generation of wearable electronics is typically standalone devices that are separately worn or in some cases attached to the garment. The advent of new nanomaterials strategies is poised to create a significant opportunity for seamlessly embedding wearable electronics into the fabric. Therefore, new wearable technologies are expected to have a transformative impact on opportunities related to electronic textile, energy storage, energy generation, sensing, actuation, and health monitoring applications. The motivation behind this Special Issue is the observed growing interest in the design, fabrication, and application of electrofunctional nanomaterials for actuation, sensing, smart textiles and energy conversion in many fields. Energy harvesting/storage, actuators, force/pressure measurement, porosity or color variation, and sensors (movement, temperature, and chemicals) are some of these functionalities. Considering your prominent contribution in this interesting research field, I would like to cordially invite you to submit a paper to this Special Issue through the webpage of the journal (“Advances in Electrofunctional Nanomaterials for Actuation, Sensing, Smart Textiles, and Energy Conversion”).

Submission Date: 2021-12-31

Dear Colleagues, Carbon nanomaterials (CNMs), such as single- and multiwalled carbon nanotubes, carbon nanofibers, graphene, and graphene oxide, have found a great interest in the fields of nanocomposite materials because of their unique properties. In particular, they are characterized by a large surface area, good environmental stability, and excellent electrical, thermal, chemical, and mechanical properties. Clearly, the incorporation of CNMs in polymer matrices is a very attractive approach to merge the mechanical and processability features of the polymer with the conductive properties of the nanofiller. These nanocomposites open up new opportunities in various fields ranging from sensors, electrochemical capacitors, solar cells, transistors, to molecular electronic devices. This Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims at collecting works focusing on the correlation of the nanocomposite preparation approach with the material final features, particularly in terms of CNM dispersion and nanofiller/polymer interaction, analyzing in detail the effect of nanofiller functionalization.

Special Issue on Recent Advances in the Assessment of Engineered Nanomaterials: Ecotoxicity, Cytotoxicity and Genotoxicity 
Submission Date: 2021-12-31

Dear Colleagues, The last 20 years have proven that nanotechnology provides tremendous benefits and numerous applications to society. Outstanding developments in this field have led to a continuous increase in the production and use of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) for everyday life applications, ranging from food and cosmetics, to biomedicine, electronics, energy production and storage, agriculture and environment. According to Nanodatabase (http://nanodb.dk/) currently there are more than 4712 products (October 2020) containing nanomaterials. Unfortunately, extended manufacturing and use generally causes significant amounts of ENMs to be released into the environment (air, water, soil) and the full toxicological picture in this regard is still to be elucidated. Concerns also arise due to their potential harmful effects on animals and humans. ENMs can reach the human body directly from the air, water, ingested or skin-applied products, or via trophic transfer. In this context, a growing interest has emerged to study the potentially toxic side effects of ENMs. The aim of this Special Issue is to publish research on recent advances in nanoscience related to cytotoxicity, genotoxicity, and ecotoxicity of the novel or currently existing nanomaterials, and their impact on the environment, living organisms and human health.

Special Issue on Combination of Cold Atmospheric Plasma and Nanomaterials in Cancer Treatment
Submission Date: 2021-12-31

Dear Colleagues, Chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy and clinical surgery, although used today to eradicate cancer cells, are highly nonselective and commonly result in unexpected sides effects, leading frequently to the death of normal cells. Therefore, advanced research is underway to develop new anticancer methods and techniques, which are no longer limited to new chemotherapeutic agents. One of the newest and most promising tools in the treatment of cancer which has been extensively investigated is cold atmospheric pressure plasma (CAPP)-based protocols, often associated with the simultaneous action of the chemotherapeutic drugs, nanoparticles or nanomaterials that carry these chemotherapeutics. CAPP generates reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, UV radiation as well as various charged and uncharged reactive particles and species that tend to change biological cells’ surfaces by inducing oxidative stress. As a result, this interference with the cell microenvironment is responsible for certain desired changes in gene activity and markers of expression of cancer cells, leading to the efficient inhibition of their growth and a selective reduction in their number by apoptosis or other death mechanisms. A synergistic effect of CAPP treatment on cancer cells can be achieved by including nanomaterials. In this case, CAPP helps in increasing the cell membrane’s permeability, which allows the more efficient invasion of nanoparticles or nanomaterial-based drug delivery carriers towards selected sites affected by the cancer and lesions. Moreover, the simultaneous action of CAPP and nanomaterials can help in tissue regeneration by stimulating normal cell proliferation as well as inactivating a broad spectrum of pathogenic microorganisms, including, particularly, those which are multidrug-resistant. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/nano_cold_plasma The current Special Issue seeks contributions from scientists and researchers dealing with new applications of CAPP and the development of appropriate plasma devices to treat cancer and alleviate its effects in the body. In particular, it is focused on the effects of CAPP on the microenvironment of cancer cells, the induction of their programmed death, as well as the positive effect on normal cells. Scientific works devoted to the synergistic antitumor activity of CAPP and nanomaterials are particularly welcome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following: Liquid-mediated and surface-mediated effects of CAPP on cancer and normal cells, including cell proliferation, apoptosis, migration and permeability; In vitro and in vivo studies of selective CAPP treatment of various tumors; Combination of CAPP and nanomaterials for noninvasive cancer treatment; Application of CAPP and nanomaterials in tumor therapy and tissue regeneration.

Special Issue on Nanomaterials as Cancer Theranostic Agents
Submission Date: 2021-12-31

Dear Colleagues, The high prevalence of cancer in recent years has necessitated the development of new diagnosis strategies and targeted therapies that are more effective and produce fewer side effects. The synthesis of materials at the nanoscale and their use in anticancer therapy is now being increasingly directed toward their use in the design of precisely engineered systems. Overall, these efforts will benefit patients, who will suffer fewer side effects in addition to having a higher survival rate with a higher quality of life. Smart nanomaterials represent one of the most interesting classes of materials for use as therapeutic platforms, both in the diagnosis and treatment of neoplasms. Diagnostic methods are essential for the early detection of cancer to enable their prompt treatment, minimizing possible damage to the rest of the organism. Diagnostic tools such as nanobiosensors, lab-on-a-chip, and imaging systems based on the use of nanoparticles offer higher sensitivity and assist in the early detection of disease, offering a better prognosis and greater possibilities for successful treatment. Moreover, nanovehicles—nanoscale compounds used as a therapeutic tool and designed to specifically accumulate at sites of the body where they are needed for improving pharmacotherapeutic outcomes—are one of the most important nanotechnology applications that have been developed over the past decade. Diverse platforms of nanotechnology, such as liposomes, micelles, core–shell nanodevices, hydrogels, and polymersomes, can be utilized to develop more sophisticated, cancer-cell-targeted therapies and to combine different drugs into a single nanotherapeutic agent for synergistic therapeutic benefits. In this context, this Special Issue aims to collect the latest advances in which the synthesis, modification, properties, and applications of nanomaterials in both diagnosis and cancer treatment are highlighted.

Special Issue on Recent Advances in Luminescent Nanocomposites for Sensing Applications
Submission Date: 2021-12-31

Dear Colleagues, The avalanche-like growth in interest in the world of nano has triggered extensive progress in the development of smart multicomponent low-dimensional materials called nanocomposites. Combinations of two or more functional components within one nanoarchitecture result in new content, which benefits from both size and multimodality. Bringing together several functionalities opens the door to a wide range of applications. Luminescent nanomaterials are exceptionally interesting due to their large number of surface atoms or molecules. Being on the frontier of two phases, luminescent species are extremely sensitive to the presence of complementary analytes. Nanocomposite-analyte interaction results in photophysical response characterized by exceedingly low limits of detection, which gives rise to luminescent sensing. This Special Issue is open for contributions on luminescent nanospecies that are utilized for sensing applications. Works on the composite “nano-” with dual modality (e.g., dual-luminescent, magneto-luminescent, etc.) are particularly welcomed for submission. Studies on structural and morphological regulations and energy transfer affecting synergy or antagonism of nanocomposite building blocks will be focused on as well in this issue.

Special Issue on Identification and Quantification of Nanomaterials
Submission Date: 2021-12-31

Dear Colleagues, The identification and quantification of nanomaterials is currently a very active field of research. In view of the numerous ongoing regulatory activities addressing nanomaterials (e.g. amendments of nanospecific provisions in the REACH, Novel Food, Cosmetics and Medical Devices Regulations in Europe, rules and decisions on nanomaterials by US EPA and US FDA) manufacturers and regulators are in urgent need of scientific and technical progress to meet new regulatory requirements for nanomaterials. Identification and quantification of nanomaterials is a key requirement in this context and useful for innovators already in the material development phase to predict classification as nanomaterial (or the contrary) and to anticipate regulatory requirements for the final product. Enforcement laboratories need to be able to assess not only raw materials at the product ingredient level, but they must be able to analyse the final products on the market to identify and quantify the presence of a nanomaterial. Currently, there is an emerging issue with nanoplastics, which poses particular analytical and conceptual challenges. There has been some progress in recent years regarding the identification and quantification of nanomaterials as raw material, but for final products and materials which are difficult to analyse, such as nanoplastics, this is still extremely challenging. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/quantification_nanomaterials Keywords: nanomaterial identification; nanomaterial quantification; particle measurement methods (quantitative and qualitative); proxy methods; reference materials and standardisation; nanomaterials in products, formulations, and in the environment; safety of nanomaterials; nanoforms; nanoplastics; advanced nanomaterials.

Special Issue on Quantum Dots for Fluorescence Imaging
Submission Date: 2021-12-31

Dear Colleagues, Quantum Dots (QDs), which were originally identified as tiny semiconductor nanoparticles (with a size of several nanometers), from the moment of their appearance in the literature in the mid-1980s, immediately occupied a very important place in nanoscience and nanotechnology. A special property that determined the success that QDs have enjoyed is the tunable fluorescence (or photoluminescence). The tunable fluorescence of QDs makes them uniquely suited to various applications. In particular, QDs turned out to be indispensable in bioscience and biotechnology, where they are used for fluorescent imaging of various bio-objects (from cells to micro RNA). Of course, fluorescent imaging is not the only application of QDs. They are widely used in CERS, the development of new lasers and ultrasensitive sensors, and many other fields. However, the concept of a QD as a semiconductor particle has recently undergone a significant change after it turned out that the smallest particles of not only semiconductors but also some metals (such as Ag and Si) have the property of tunable fluorescence. A significant change in the study of QDs occurred with the discovery of carbon QDs, which, in contrast to semiconductor QDs, show low toxicity, have more stable fluorescence, and are significantly cheaper to produce. More recently, research has started to shift towards another new very promising object: graphene QDs. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/quantum_dots_fluoresc This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will attempt to cover the most recent findings in QD science and applications. Studies that describe new synthesis methods, fabrication techniques and approaches, characterization techniques, materials as possible candidates for QDs, and properties of different QDs will be considered.

Special Issue on Study on Self-Assembly of Polymer and Inorganic Nanomaterials
Submission Date: 2021-12-31

Dear Colleagues, Self-assembly describes a process to develop ordered structures from disordered building blocks. It is a crucial and powerful method to make all kinds of functional materials or hierarchical structures both in nature and synthetic conditions, which relies on the elaborate choice of assembly building blocks and the fine control of interactions between them. Among different building blocks, polymers and inorganic nanoparticles gain extensive attention due to their diverse chemical structures and excellent chemical or physical properties. Especially, polymers (including DNA or other biopolymers, etc.) can guide the assembly of inorganic nanoparticles into desirable ordered-structures, which exhibit unique collective and emerging properties that differ from individual nanoparticles. Therefore, self-assembly of polymers and inorganic nanoparticles is an essential technology to develop advanced materials with applications in a variety of different fields. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/polymer_inorganic Despite the rapid development of self-assembly technology, there are still many challenges remaining, such as but not limited to: i, how to generate responsive assemblies that can dynamically change their structures or properties to meet the requirement of complicated applications, such as drug delivery, sensors, bioimaging, micro/nanomotors, and many others; ii: how to generate orchestrated nanostructures through self-assembly, such as Janus or heteronanoparticles, polyelemental nanoparticles, etc; iii, how to improve the uniformity of assembly structures through developing new assembly method, such as technologies based on microfluidics, external field (e.g. magnetic, electric, light, gravity or shear); iv, new method to accurately manipulate the interactions between inorganic nanoparticles should be developed to make hierarchical-assembled structures or functional materials; v, new efficient and repeatable self-assembly method to fabricate macroscopic structures should be developed; vi, the potential applications of various self-assembly technologies in biomedical, healthcare or environmental monitoring devices, energy, information storage, environmental and other fields need further development. Hence, in this special issue, we would like to further explore the various strategies to assemble polymer and inorganic nanoparticles to meet the rising demands for functional materials and advanced applications.

Submission Date: 2021-12-31

Dear Colleagues, Fluorescent materials (natural fluorophores, fluorescent sensors, metal nanoparticles, quantum dots, etc.) have found numerous applications in diverse areas of science where sub-nm spatial resolution is essential. More recently, man-made materials, such as metal nanoparticles and quantum dots, have demonstrated high applicability due to their advantages over aromatic fluorophores: chemical inertness, biocompatibility, high water solubility, resistance to photobleaching, opportunity for surface functionalisation, low toxicity and tuneable optical properties. These features make them ideal fluorophores for fluorescence sensing, bioimaging, photocatalysis, drug delivery, or theranostic applications, underpinning key aspects of bio and medical sciences. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/nano_fluorescent This Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims to cover the recent advancements in new fluorescent materials and new fluorescence spectroscopy methods for researching processes occurring in the nm scale and the sub-nm scale, which is currently beyond all current microscopies.

Special Issue on Multifunctional Magnetic Nanocomposites: Innovative Processing and Applications
Submission Date: 2021-12-31

Dear Colleagues, The main advantage of heterogeneous nanosystems is the possibility of combining and inter-influencing the electronic properties of constituent interfaced nanophases. Unique physicochemical properties of the hybrid material of interest in various applications can be obtained. The functionality of such systems can be provided by the possibility to actuate the most sensitive nanophase and to exploit the proper response of another nanophase which is directly or indirectly influenced by the actuated phase. Multifunctional magnetic nanocomposites are among such heterogeneous nanosized systems where at least one phase component is magnetic and can act as an intermediate of either the actuation or the response of the system. As compared to the heterogeneous layered systems with at least one magnetic layer of nanometer thickness, also of high technological impact, multifunctional magnetic nanocomposites can be obtained by less expensive processing technologies. In addition, they present much extended specific surfaces and active interfaces which allow additional engineering of the application-oriented parameters through tunable morphologies of the nanosized components. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/magnetic_nanocomposites This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will report on the innovative processing, characterization, and applications of multifunctional magnetic nanocomposites consisting of different matrices (polymer-like, carbon-based, oxides, or intermetallics) embedded or decorated by different magnetic nanostructures (magnetic nanoparticles and nanowires of different organizations and of different structures from monophase to core–shell).

Dear Colleagues, Carbon nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphenes are the most unique and promising substances for high-performance composites these days. Due to their graphitic structures of tubular and planar shape in nanoscale dimensions and high aspect ratios, a small amount of these nanomaterials can implement a dramatic improvement in the mechanical, thermal, and electrical properties of their composite materials. Although carbon nanomaterials impart numerous extraordinary properties to the nanocomposites, their reported commercialization is still limited due to difficulties in dispersion.

Special Issue on Transport and Noise Behavior of Nanoelectronic Devices
Submission Date: 2021-12-31

Dear Colleagues, With the drive to fabricate smaller and more powerful circuits, the size of electronic devices has been progressively scaled down, following Moore's law. Modern nanoelectronic devices have a size in the order of tens of nanometers and present very peculiar characteristics: transport has become close to ballistic and quantum mechanical effects play a significant role. Since characteristic device sizes are approaching the atomic scale, the physical properties of materials differ from those of the bulk, and they must be properly taken into account. Moreover, the reduction of the volume of the active region enhances the effects of impurities and material defects. Noise is the main source of signal degradation and it is often closely related to the material properties, which makes the choice of material a key issue. A very large design and technological effort has been devoted to pushing to the limits of the present device concepts (More Moore approach), with the introduction of new materials for the active region of the devices (e.g., silicon on insulator) and of geometries such as the gate-all-around and the finfet transistors. From a different perspective, radically new materials and principles of operation have also been proposed (More than Moore approach), in order to overcome the limitations in further scaling. Alternative ways to store, elaborate and transmit information, such as spintronics and valleytronics, and new principles of operation, such as adiabatic computing and quantum computing, are being actively explored. This Special Issue aims to collect significant research articles reporting on theoretical and/or experimental advancements in the transport and/or noise behavior of nanoelectronic devices and in the related material, technological, synthesis and characterization issues.

Dear Colleagues, The application of nanotechnologies for nano-sized biosensing devices provides innovative tools able to foster analytical devices in the sectors of health, medicine, food, environment, and agriculture. These results lead to equipment that is less invasive and with improved features in terms of sensitivity, selectivity and stability over time. In particular, nanomaterials have proved to be extremely useful concerning their capability to enhance the performance of sensing means, as well as representing innovative and competitive biosynthetic recognition elements for specific analytical targets. In the last few decades, some concerns have arisen about nanomaterials, especially regarding issues related to human health and environmental protection. For these reasons, the urgency to develop a more sustainable line of research has been strong. Currently, green nanotechnology works on two fronts: the synthesis of nanomaterials from biological routes, as well as the improvement of traditional production protocols to provide new possibilities with minimal requirement of hazardous substances and strongly reduced energy needs. Furthermore, the growing interest in circular economy procedures has resulted in emerging scientific interest regarding the recovery of waste materials and its transformation into valuable resources and final products. This new point of view supported the development of intriguing new protocols to produce both traditional and innovative nanomaterials, starting from other syntheses and/or industrial processes using residual materials.

Special Issue on Nanostructures for CO2 Reduction
Submission Date: 2022-01-31

Dear Colleagues, The increasing concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere has been recognized as the primary factor for global warming. In recent years, development of routes for highly efficient conversion of CO2 into fuels and added-value materials has received much attention as an integral part of carbon management. CO2 reduction can be achieved by a variety of technologies: mineralization, electrochemical conversion, thermochemical conversion, photochemical/photo-electrochemical conversion, enzymatic conversion, etc. Most of these processes are developed through nanostructured materials such as metal alloys and oxides, semiconductors, and carbonaceous supports in the form of nanoporous materials, nanostructured materials, quantum dots, nanoparticles, nanorods, nanofibers, nanotubes, nanohorns, nanoribbons, thin films, nanolayers, nanowalls, nanoclusters, foams, hydrogels, nanocomposite materials, electrodes, etc. These materials exhibit improved properties mainly due to their high surface-volume ratios. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/nano_reduction This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will attempt to cover recent advancements in the synthesis, characterization, and assessment of different nanostructures during CO2 reduction processes, including deposition, doping, codoping, support, functionalization, surface modification, junction, sensitization, immobilization, surface plasmon, clustering, self-assembly, etc. Prof. Dr. Rafael Camarillo Guest Editor You may send your manuscript any time from now until the deadline, as individual papers will be published on an ongoing basis and collected virtually in the Special Issue.

Special Issue on Kondo Effect in Graphene and Graphene-Like Materials
Submission Date: 2022-01-31

Dear Colleagues, Graphene is an allotrope of carbon consisting of a single layer of atoms arranged in a two-dimensional (2D) honeycomb lattice. Graphene’s unique properties of thinness and conductivity have led to global research into its applications as a semiconductor. On the other hand, graphene is a model system for the study of electrons confined to a strictly two-dimensional layer, and this made it the favorite benchmark of theorists. The physics of graphene and graphene-based systems has inspired the application and development of many advanced theoretical methods, including those outside the scope of traditional condensed matter physics. Fundamental studies went hand-in-hand with the applied ones and, in some cases, the former even opened doors to possible applications. Many electronic phenomena in graphene are manifestly different from their counterparts in more traditional materials. In particular, low dimensionality and the nontrivial band dispersion of electrons in graphene strongly influence electron interaction with local magnetic moments and give rise to interesting Kondo physics different from that in conventional 3D materials. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/graphene_kondo This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will attempt to cover recent studies, both theoretical and experimental, that advance our understanding of Kondo physics in graphene and other 2D layered materials. This includes both fundamental research of the mechanical, transport, magnetic, and optical properties of graphene, and studies of graphene-based electronic devices and structures.

Special Issue on Graphene-Enriched Nanobiomaterials
Submission Date: 2022-01-31

Dear Colleagues, This Special Issue of Nanomaterials entitled “Graphene-Enriched Nanobiomaterials” focuses on new developments of biomaterials enriched/functionalized with or based on graphene or graphene derivatives for applications in the biomedical field. The concept of graphene can be extended to the entire family of graphene and, therefore, carbon-based structures, such as carbon nanotubes, carbon nano-onions, or graphene quantum dots, to name but a few, are equally included. Graphene and its derivatives have emerged in the last fifteen years as impressive nanostructures. Their exceptional properties, such as extraordinary strength, high flexibility, high aspect ratio, high thermal, and electrical conductivity, have been favorably exploited to improve the features of materials. Furthermore, functionalized or properly treated graphene, for example, graphene oxide, owing to properties such as easy high-quality production, realistically simple scaling-up, solubility and biocompatibility tuning depending on the chosen functionalization has recently emerged as a preferential additive for surface modification or a building block for the preparation of novel nano-biomaterials. This Special Issue will highlight recent ideas and future perspectives concerning graphene-enriched nano-biomaterials, ranging from their physicochemical structure investigation up to their use in advanced biomedical applications. Specifically, original research or review articles should investigate and discuss aspects such as novel functionalization, biomedical design, biomaterial engineering, nanofabrication, and novel applications of graphene-enriched or graphene-based nano-biomaterials.

Special Issue on Nanostructured Materials as Photosensitizers: Synthesis, Properties and Applications
Submission Date: 2022-02-28

Dear Colleagues, This Special Issue will focus on the advancements enabled by nanostructured materials used as photosensitizers in various applications. Photosensitizers can be a natural or synthetic molecule that absorbs light of a specific wavelength and transfers it to an adjacent molecule, leading to a chemical change or other kind of energy conversion within that proximal molecule. Throughout the years, a wide range of photosensitizers has been developed, ranging from chlorophyll and organic fluorophores over carbon-based nanoparticles and gold nanoparticles to semiconductor nanocrystals. Those photosensitizers’ versatile photophysical properties make them attractive in applications such as photosynthesis, photocatalysis, photodynamic therapy, and solar cell fabrication. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/nanostructured_photosensitizers This Special Issue aims to: i) collect the newest developments in the synthesis of photosensitizers, ii) provide new insights into the mechanisms and origin of their photophysical properties, and iii) demonstrate new applications of these materials. However, reviews summarizing the developments of a class of photosensitizers or describing a specific application are also welcome.

Special Issue on State-of-the-Art 2D and Carbon Nanomaterials in China
Submission Date: 2022-02-28

Dear Colleagues, Recently, research on two-dimensional (2D) atomic crystals and carbon nanomaterials has become intense and is likely to remain one of the leading topics in chemistry, condensed matter physics and materials science for many years. To date, hundreds of 2D materials have been explored for different properties and applications. The large number of 2D materials provides an ideal platform to explore different properties at ultrathin limits. Two-dimensional and carbon nanomaterials have shown great application potentials in different areas such as energy storage and conversion, computing semiconductors, quantum devices and wearable devices. Besides, the van der Waals interactions between the layers of 2D materials can offer new physics or applications. For example, the rotation of the layers of 2D materials will lead to totally different properties and the stacking of different 2D materials will result in 2D heterostructures with new physics and chemistry. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/carbon_china China is among the top countries which contribute the most papers in the field of “2D and Carbon Nanomaterials”. This Special Issue specifically focuses on “State-of-the-Art 2D and Carbon Nanomaterials in China” and welcomes contributions devoted to the synthesis, characterization, property tuning and application of novel 2D and carbon nanomaterials.

Special Issue on Toxicity of Nanoparticles in the Lung: Environmental and Medical Aspects
Submission Date: 2022-03-25

Dear Colleagues, With the broad use of nanoparticles in many products, accumulation in the environment and increased exposure of humans may occur. Adverse effects of non-intentionally inhaled nanoparticles in humans may be caused by environmental exposure, at the workplace, and by exposure to medical products. The biocompatibility of nanoparticles has been intensely studied in vitro and in vivo over the last decade, and the role of the respiratory system as the most permeable and vulnerable portal of entry was confirmed. Nevertheless, action on the immune system, effects on repeated exposure, organ-specificity, etc., are not well known. Translation of experimental data to estimation of human risk is complicated by a lack of representative models and exposure conditions, inter-individual differences in exposure levels and in predisposing biological factors. In addition to unintended toxicity, nanoparticles can be used to increase the efficacy of cytostatic drugs, mainly for the treatment of lung cancer. Better encapsulation of poorly-soluble drugs, delivery of small molecules, and enhanced permeability and retention effect increase anticancer action. Similar nanoparticle properties, such as cellular accumulation, decreased clearance, and modulation of immune effects, are linked to undesired effects in the lung; however, the same effects that cause the undesired effects of environmental nanoparticles in the lung are exploited to increase efficacy of nanoparticles in medical treatments. https://www.mdpi.com/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/tox_nano_lung This Topical Collection will be dedicated to reactions of nanoparticles in the respiratory system. Toxic reactions to air-borne particles and medical particles as well as differences in reactions of the respiratory system compared to other organs are of interest. We welcome the submission of comprehensive/mini reviews, original research articles, and communications.

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.
