The implementation of safe-and-sustainable-by-design nano-manufacturing requires a deep knowledge of material properties across the life-cycle, to form a design hypothesis and develop materials and nano-enabled products that fulfil the criteria of maximising functionality, minimising hazard and exposure potential, satisfying the environmental impact and cost requirements (all the dimensions suggested by the JRC Framework as the criteria and evaluation procedure for chemicals and materials). To take advantages of the sector-specific issues and target solutions, and extend this approach to real case studies, contributions showing practical examples (case studies) of how this approach is implemented to develop new materials and products are expected.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will cover the re-design of materials, processes and products for the implementation of safe-and-sustainable-by-design nano-manufacturing. The format of welcomed articles includes full papers, communications, and reviews.

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.
