Special Issue "Advances in the Application of Nanoparticles in Biomedical and Ecology Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 February 2024 | Viewed by 9514
Interests: first principles quantum chemical calculations; semi-empirical and empirical calculation methods; modeling of processes occurring in nanostructures (nanotubes; graphene; graphane; fullerenes; etc.); drug delivery systems; water treatment
The modern development of nanomaterials makes it possible to extend their application to the most diverse aspects of human life. Due to their small size, nanoparticles possess unique physico-chemical and electronic properties, which are used in the agriculture, manufacturing, cosmetic, food and pharmaceutical industries. Nanotechnology has also significantly contributed to improvements in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Designing nanomaterials for specific applications has now become a research priority; these applications include drug delivery, the creation of biocompatible and/or antibacterial materials and coatings, as well as materials for tissue regeneration, wound healing and sorption, and the water purification of pharmaceutical contaminants.
In this Special Issue, we aim to collect papers on recent advances in the application of nanoparticles and nanoparticle-based nanomaterials for use in drug delivery, as drug sorbents, and in other biomedical and environmental applications.

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.
