Abstract (summary)

Nanomaterials have been widely studied for many years and they have also generated an intense scientific interest due to a wide variety of potential applications in biomedical, optical, and electronic fields. Nanomaterials have drawn attention based on the few properties they exhibit like their surface to mass ratio and the reactivity of their surface. Also, the control of composition, size, shape, and morphology of nanomaterials is an essential cornerstone for the development and application of nanomaterials and nanoscale devices. The selection of material depends on factors such as (i) required size of nanoparticles, (ii) aqueous solubility and stability, (iii) surface characteristics as charge and permeability, or (iv) degree of biodegradability, biocompatibility, and toxicity. This special issue holds 3 reviews and 10 original research articles.
