Green Design of Bio-Multifunctional Materials

This issue is now closed for submissions.
More articles will be published in the near future.


Finding new safe and eco-friendly approaches for the fabrication of nanomaterials to address issues such as antibiotic resistance, cancer, and other human diseases is one of the major problems facing humanity today. “Green” nanotechnology has revolutionized several fields of science and opened new perspectives on the applications of nanomaterials in nanomedicine, engineering, chemistry, physics, biotechnology, agriculture, and so on.

The green routes to obtain nanomaterials by using natural resources (like plant extracts, vegetal wastes) have received considerable attention in the last few decades, due to their low-cost, enhanced biological activities, and biocompatibility. Thus, hybrid materials containing biogenic nano-metals, biomimetic membranes, or biopolymers have exhibited improved bio-performances.

This Special Issue invites authors to contribute original research and review papers describing advances in the green design of novel performant nano/micro-materials, the exploitation of natural resources and recycling vegetal wastes, and converting such materials into valuable nanomaterials with potential applications in biomedical fields. For these purposes, we particularly encourage multidisciplinary research.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Green nanotechnology
  • Metal nanoparticles: green synthesis using natural resources, and bio-activities
  • Plasma technology for green synthesis of nanomaterials
  • Plasmonic bio-based hybrid materials
  • Eco-nano technologies and advanced materials
  • Nanomaterials with bioperformances (antioxidant, antimicrobial, antiproliferative activity, cancer therapy)
  • Bio-active materials based on biopolymers (DNA, proteins, polysaccharides, etc.)
  • Nano/micro-materials containing bio-active compounds (plant extracts, chlorophyll, biopolymers, etc.)
  • Biomimetic membranes in biological active materials
  • Nanomaterials as biopesticides
