We would like to introduce a Special Issue on the toxicology, ecotoxicology, and environmental chemistry of nanomaterials to summarize the current knowledge on the risks and benefits of nanoscale materials, including nanoparticles and nanoplastics. Nanomaterials are emerging contaminants that are continuously released into the environment as a result of their extensive use in industry, medical care, and consumer goods, to name a few. The economic and social impact of nanomaterials is extraordinary if we consider that the nano-economy was worth a trillion dollars at the end of 2015. Significant progress on the measurement and management of the associated hazards and risks of nanomaterials is evident; however, there are many challenges ahead and controversies that need to be focalized in an ecological context. Knowledge transfer from toxicology, chemistry, and environmental sciences to ecotoxicology becomes a valuable tool for nano-related human and environmental risk assessment and management. For this Special Issue, we would like to collect the current knowledge of nanomaterials from an ecotoxicological perspective, which is understood to be a multi-disciplinary field that brings together and integrates the other disciplines cited above.
In this Special Issue, original research articles, reviews, comments, and perspectives are all welcome.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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. Toxics 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 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.
