Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue focuses on 'Radiation Technology in Nanomaterials', delving into the multifaceted realm of radiation sciences, which intersects with nanotechnology. This publication showcases the extensive applications and innovations in manipulating nanomaterials through radiation exposure. This fusion of disciplines merges the intricate principles of radiation physics and chemistry with the intricate domain of nanoscience. By harnessing various forms of radiation, including gamma rays, X-rays, and electron beams, scientists may wield precise control over nanomaterial properties such as size, structure, and composition. Among these methods, gamma radiation stands out as a powerful tool, facilitating the synthesis of nanomaterials, particularly metal nanoparticles. Gamma radiation initiates radiation-induced processes such as radiolysis and nucleation, enabling the controlled creation of nanoparticles with distinct characteristics. This tailored manipulation empowers the development of nanomaterials that are tailored for a wide spectrum of applications, spanning industries, medicine, and beyond. In industrial sectors, this technology underpins the creation of high-performance materials pivotal for advancements in electronics, energy storage, and environmental remediation. In healthcare, the strategic use of radiation technology crafts nanomaterials and nanoparticles precisely, catering to targeted drug delivery systems, diagnostic imaging agents, and innovative therapeutic treatments. This interdisciplinary landscape is perpetually evolving, exploring novel radiation-based techniques to engineer nanomaterials, diversifying their properties, functionalities, and applications. The synthesis of nanomaterials using radiation-based methods contributes to an expanding array of applications.

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.
