Special Issue in Nanomaterials: Advanced Nanomaterials for Water Remediation
Marine life has always been a unique source of bioactive compounds with a formidable impact in fields such as medicine, cosmetics, and food industry.
Recently, the great development of nanotechnology with several applications in different fields has promoted the search for new methods for the synthesis of nanoparticles in a more sustainable approach. In this regard, marine resource appears as a great alternative to producing nanomaterials in an eco-friendly, non-toxic, and cost-effective way. The components extracted from marine resources, such as algae, have been proven to act as reducing and stabilizing agents during the synthesis.
This Special Issue will focus on nanoparticles synthesis mediated by marine organisms or compounds and the evaluation of their biological activity. It is a novel topic for Marine Drugs and we hope to receive manuscripts dealing with new research in the field. Relevant reviews on the topic are also welcome.

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. Marine Drugs is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2900 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
