Nanomaterials for Biotechnology: Synthesis, Properties, and Applications

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


Nanotechnology focuses on the development of novel, functional materials at an atomic, molecular, and macromolecular scale at sizes ranging from 1 to 100 nm. In recent years, studies related to the synthesis of nanomaterials and nanoparticles with unique and desired properties have attracted growing attention due to their small size, multifucntionality, surface tailorability, and biocompatibility. These features have led to increasing numbers of applications in which nanomaterials for various branches of science, industry, and daily life have emerged; however their use in biotechnology is of particular importance. This rapidly growing, cross-disciplinary field of science gives the possibility to design and develop novel solutions that include application of multifunctional nanoparticles in biomedicine, cancer diagnosis, the food industry, or heterogenous catalysts as well as support for biocatalysts. The widespread application of nanomaterials acts as a driving force for research and development of nanomaterials-based systems in biotechnology.

This special Issue welcomes contributions which report on the synthesis, characterization, and application of nanomaterials of various origins in all areas of biotechnology. We hope to attract original research articles related to the fundamental science and practical use of nanomaterials in biotechnology as well as review articles which describe the current state of the art.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Fabrication and characterization of nanomaterials for biotechnology applications
  • Nanomaterials as nanobiocatalysts
  • Nanomaterials for enzyme immobilization and enzymatic biosensing
  • Nanomaterials for nanomedicine and related applications
