Nanoparticles, with dimensions ranging from 1 to 100 nanometers, exhibit unique properties due to their high surface-to-volume ratio. Advanced chemical engineering in nanoparticles holds great promise in revolutionizing various scientific and industrial sectors. This emerging field encompasses the synthesis process, materials characterization, physical/chemical properties, and various applications of nanoparticles. Understanding the fundamental principles behind nanoparticle chemistry and engineering is crucial for developing novel materials and devices with tailored functionalities.
Specifically, the synthesis process of nanoparticles involves the precise control over size, shape, and composition, which can be achieved through various chemical engineering techniques. The materials characterization plays a vital role in understanding the structure and properties of nanoparticles. Techniques such as X-ray diffraction, electron microscopy, and spectroscopy are commonly employed to analyze their chemical composition, crystal structure, and morphology. These characterizations help in tailoring the properties of nanoparticles for specific applications.
The physical/chemical properties of nanoparticles make them suitable for a wide range of applications. For example, Metallic nanorods find applications in catalysis, sensing and biomedical fields, while carbon nanotubes and graphene are utilized in electronics, energy storage, and composite materials. Recent cutting-edge topics in this field include the development of different kinds of nanoparticles, such as Au nanoparticles, up-conversion nanoparticles, metal-organic frameworks, for tumor-targeting drug delivery and environmental remediation.

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. ChemEngineering is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs).
