Special Issue Information
Nanomaterials (particularly for cellulose nanomaterials and lignin nanoparticles) derived from biomass have attracted much attention from both academia and industry due to their unique nanostructure and physicochemical properties. Distint from inorganic nanomaterials, nanomaterials from biomass also have good renewability, biocompatibility and biodegrability. Therefore, nanomaterials from biomass have a wide variety of potential applications, such as paper and paperboard for high-quality packaging; rheology modifiers for coatings, paints, foods and drinks; functional fillers for rubber and polymer composites; drug delivery and wound dressing in medicine; moisturizing factors for cosmetics; adsorbents for water treatment; bio-ink for 3D printing; and building blocks for optical, electronic and smart devices. Certainly, the present issues (such as high-cost production, low concentrations of samples, poor re-dispersibility, low durability (particularly in high moisture), and safety evaluation) are still challenging, which should be well addressed.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will present comprehensive research outlining the progress in the chemistry, modification, preparation and application of cellulosic nanomaterials and lignin nanoparticles. We invite authors to contribute original research articles and review articles covering the state of the art in the theoretical research and applications of nanomaterials from biomass.

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 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.
