Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to their unique features and qualities, hydroxyapatite (HAp)-based nanomaterials and nanocomposites are used in advanced applications in domains such as environmental remediation or biomedicine (e.g., drug and protein delivery systems). The efficiency of hydroxyapatite-based materials is strongly related to their physico-chemical (e.g., size, crystallinity, morphology, porosity, pollutant adsorption capacity, etc.) and biological properties (e.g., antimicrobial activity, biocompatibility, drug delivery ability, etc.).

This Special Issue will explore the recent advances in their fabrication, functionalization and applications. Despite the large number of studies reported in the literature, further studies are needed to better clarify important aspect such as: the interaction mechanism between hydroxyapatite-based materials and the environment, the advantages/disadvantages of their uses, etc.

This Special Issue welcomes original papers and reviews addressing the different hydroxyapatite-based materials (coatings, powders, suspension, scaffolds, etc.) and their applications in various domains such as biomedical, environmental remediation, food industry, drug delivery, cosmetic, orthopedy/dentistry, etc.

Manuscript Submission Information

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
