Special Issue in Nanomaterials: Nanostructured Materials for Environmental and Healthy Applications
Over the last few decades, due to the intensive development of nanotechnology, engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) have been released, intentionally or accidentally, into the environment. The number of ecotoxicological studies for ENMs has rapidly increased over the past few years and they have raised several critical issues.
On the other hand, the application of nanotechnology to the environment includes the use of ENMs to clean up polluted media, such as soil, water, air, groundwater, and wastewater (nanoremediation).
Nanotechnologies also have the potential to have disadvantages as well as confer benefits in terms of the exposure of humans to new nanomaterials. ENMs influence human safety by environmental pollution, unintentional exposure (e.g., due to pollution or exposure at the workplace), and purposeful exposure by the intended application (nanomedicine).
The objective of this Special Issue of Nanomaterials is to highlight advances in the environmental and health applications of ENMs. Topics of particular interest include:
- The influence of ENMs on environmental pollution and associated organisms;
- Sustainable (nano)solutions for environmental remediation;
- Effects of exposure to ENMs on human health;
- New ENMs for the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of disease; and
- ENMs for the identification of disease biomarkers.

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.
