Plant-based nanocarriers play an important role in several biomedical applications, ranging from drug delivery to tissue engineering. Their unique properties, such as the ease of their surface functionalization, natural abundance, high stability and cost effectiveness, make them ideal candidates for health care applications. Plants are an invaluable source of different types of molecules, which are recognized to have several therapeutic properties, due to their chemical and structural diversity and the biodiversity of their components. Nowadays, it is unquestionable that nature-based products have been, and will be, key players for the development of advanced pharmaceutical formulations. Therefore, this Special Issue aims to publish original research and review articles focused on the development of plant-derived nanotherapeutics and nanocarriers for the development of better approaches to precision therapy.

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. Pharmaceuticals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
