The utilitarian nature of nanoscale systems is related to changes in the functional properties of materials (chemical, optical, magnetic, etc.) in relation to that known from the macroscale. Transition-metal-based nanoparticles, due to their distinctive physical–chemical properties, are amongst the most widely used nanoscale platforms in diverse applications, including numerous bioapplications. Combination of the knowledge from modern materials engineering and chemistry opens up the possibility to design more sophisticated transition-metal-based nanoparticle systems, such as metal oxides, sulfides, metal-organic framework nanomaterials, etc. Synthesis of novel transition-metal-based nanomaterials, their properties, functions as well as bioapplications, from molecular imaging by sensing to nanotherapeutics (e.g. cancer treatment), are in the focus of this Special Issue.

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.
