Nowadays, the optimization of different engineering devices and the development of medicine techniques demand to use the “smart” liquids that have a high thermal conductivity, and an opportunity for targeted drug delivery. Such “smart” liquids, known as nanofluids, are the suspension of a base liquid (water, oil, and others), and nanosized particles of metal, metal oxide, or biodegradable polymers. In the case of heat transfer enhancement, the usage of nanofluids allows for increasing the effective thermal conductivity, and as a result, a growth of the heat transfer rate is expected. In the case of medicine applications, the usage of nanoparticles from biodegradable polymers can be very good transport for drugs. An analysis of the nanofluid applications can be performed using theoretical or experimental techniques. Theoretical methods also include numerical simulations, which have many advantages. At the same time, experimental investigation allows for understanding the considered process, and obtains the necessary data for the validation of the developed mathematical models and numerical methods.
The present Special Issue will focus on nanofluid applications in various engineering and medicine systems. It is a very good opportunity to combine original manuscripts on the considered topic to present useful guidelines for future research.

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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
