Interests: biological responses of nanomaterials
Interests: environmental processes of nanomaterials
Nanomaterials (NMs) possess unique physical, chemical, electrical, and optical properties, and are increasingly used in numerous industrial applications. Most synthesized NMs will eventually be released into the environment; thus, the soils and sediments, waters, and plants can be directly exposed to NMs. This NM exposure poses potential health risks to the ecosystem and human health. However, there is a lack of information in the detection and analysis of NMs in complex environmental matrices, as well as regarding their interactions with environment. Exploring the detection, quantification, transport, fate, and biological impacts of NMs would help optimize their performance and assess their potential risks.
This Special Issue aims to cover recent progress in the environmental analysis and environmental processes of nanomaterials. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Sampling and analysis methods for identifying and quantifying NMs in numerous types of environmental media;
- The fate of NMs in complex environmental systems;
- The biological impacts of NMs and the regulation mechanisms.
We are pleased to invite the scientific community to submit manuscripts to be considered for publication in this Special Issue of Nanomaterials. Original research papers and review articles are welcome. We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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. Nanomaterials 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 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.
