Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metal oxide nanoparticles exhibit special structures with improved optical and electronic properties, and can form composite materials with other compounds. For example, metal oxide–polymer or biomolecules nanocomposites also exhibit good electrical and optical properties and are of great interest for researchers. These hybrid materials by combining specific properties were used for a wide range of applications in the fields of solar cells, biosensing devices, optoelectronic packaging, useful in biology and biomedical applications for in vivo and in vitro studies, etc. Therefore, for the understanding of physico-chemical phenomena, modeling techniques can be used to solve the structures and reactivity of molecular and supramolecular systems, interactions between molecules or their interactions with catalytic surfaces, etc.

The aim of this Special Issue is to publish high quality research papers addressing the current and future advances on the achievement, characterization and application in areas of interest of the metal oxide nanoparticles, metal oxide–polymeror biomolecules nanocomposites.

In particular, the topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Molecular level information about the number of active surface sites and reactivity per site.
  • Studies to understand the interaction mechanisms and identify the functionality of inorganic binding biomolecules
  • Biofunctional nanostructured materials for  biosensing devices,  biology and biomedical 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.
