Nowadays, humanity is facing serious problems due to the environmental pollution. Several tons of plastic or industrial wastes are dumped randomly in nature, polluting waters and soils, thus creating many health problems for people and all living things. To keep the Earth clean, we need to adopt eco-friendly strategies sustaining human and environmental health. Green nanotechnology—the science of the future—can help to prevent future environmental problems and improve the quality of life and well-being. In addition, bioinspiration and biomimetics became new trends in green nanotechnology for the “green” development of multifunctional materials with potential applications in the biomedical field and in environmental protection.
This Special Issue kindly invites authors to contribute with original research articles and review papers describing novel green nanotechnologies applied to design eco-friendly materials, by exploiting natural resources and recycling food and vegetal wastes, and converting them into valuable materials with applications in various fields.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to the following:
- Eco-nano technologies and advanced materials;
- Environmental and biomedical applications of green nanomaterials;
- Eco-friendly strategies for development of (bio)composite/(bio)polymeric materials;
- Biomedical applications of nanoparticles/materials;
- Nanoparticles for drug delivery systems;
- “Green” materials and technologies for electronics.

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.
