Special Issue in Nanomaterials: Toxicity Evaluation of Nanoparticles
The realization that the properties of nano-sized materials provide many advantages over existing materials with the same chemical composition has led to a nanotechnology revolution, with the development, manufacture, and application of engineered nanoparticles across a range of commercial products, including textiles, detergents, food packaging, paints, and cosmetics. With increasing potential exposure to humans and the environment, which result from the widespread use of nanoparticles in a range of products, it has become recognized that there needs to be a greater understanding of the toxicity of these nanoparticles so as to inform risk assessments and regulations. Underpinning this need for greater understanding is the evidence that environmental exposures to ultrafine particles (in the nanoparticle size range) from the combustion of fossil fuels, including traffic exhaust emissions, are associated with a number of human diseases. Fundamental to understanding the toxicity of nanoparticles from all sources is the study of how nanoparticles interact with, enter, and damage cells. Research papers in this field have increased exponentially over the last decade and there is increasing recognition of the need for an integrated approach between toxicologists, cell biologists, and microscopists, so as to maximize the understanding of how nanoparticles interact with cells, enter cells, and damage cells. The scope of this Special Issue brings together papers from international experts in the cellular toxicity of nanoparticles, who are working in areas of both human toxicology and ecotoxicology, so as to explore the mechanisms of uptake and toxicity of different types of nanoparticles from a range of sources.

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 papers will be 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
