The unique magnetic and physicochemical properties of magnetic nanoparticles have made these systems intensively researched for biomedical applications. Magnetic fields can be used to effectively manipulate these precisely engineered smart magnetic materials. Therefore, magnetic nanoparticles are used in targeted drug delivery systems, theranostic platforms, magnetic hyperthermia, MRI imaging, or as a component of tissue engineering scaffolds or coatings of biomaterials/devices. The chemical composition and the morphological structures created by magnetic materials have a significant impact on their toxicity, biocompatibility, and especially their inducible magnetic moment. These nanoparticles can be produced by many methods, from classical chemical, electrochemical, or physical methods to biological syntheses. Magnetic nanoparticle instability in water solutions is a common problem that usually significantly limits their biomedical application. That is why the nanocrystal surface can be further functionalized by creating a stabilizing coating with organic or inorganic molecules, including surfactants, drugs, proteins, enzymes, antibodies, nucleotides, non-ionic detergents, polysaccharides, or other polyelectrolytes.
This Special Issue on “Recent Research in Magnetic Nanoparticles Engineering, Drug Delivery, and Medical Applications” is focused on current trends in modern chemistry, material science, and nanotechnology for the fabrication of magnetic materials for biomedical applications. We invite the submission of original research articles on any topic related to the synthesis, characterization, or application of magnetic materials.

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.
