Special Issue in Pharmaceuticals: Synthesis of Mimetics of Natural Compounds in Drug Development
Steps in human evolution are encompassed by technological advances starting with the development of the so-called lithic industry, following by the iron age, water and steam power use, continuing with machine tools, the atomic age, the digital revolution and the production of smart materials by means of nanotechnologies in the frame of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Sustainable development is accompanied by the translation of high-yield selective natural processes to bio- and eco-nanotechnologies for the production of functional advanced materials. Green processes are mostly found among physical methods of material functionalization. Green chemistry is also reaching new development peaks in view of using more ecological steps of active principles synthesis. Materials manipulation at the smallest scales encompasses more and more eco-nanotechnologies to preserve the natural resources and the environment. This Special Issue welcomes papers in all fields of ecological nanotechnologies from active principles synthesis to smart materials production and greener technologies development.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
