Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are fascinating metallic nanomaterials that have attracted considerable attention owing to their small size and high efficiency. Due to their unique properties, AgNPs can be used for a variety of industrial applications in the fields of medicine and engineering, e.g., in electronics, biosensors, biotechnology, etc. Silver nanoparticles are known for their antimicrobial properties; thus, they are also applied in various healthcare products, e.g., in cosmetics. However, an analysis of the toxic effects of AgNPs must be undertaken prior to their integration into the biomedical field.
