Manuscript collection to Special Issue: Environmental Nanotechnology

Special Issue of Nanomaterials journal called "Environmental Nanotechnology", edited by Prof. Michael Komárek and Prof. José Luis Rodríguez Gallego, invites researchers to support this particularly topical subject. This Special Issue aims to cover all potential aspects related to the use of engineered nanoparticles for environmental management and remediation, improving soil properties, including an assessment of potential ecotoxicologal risks.

Keywords: nanomaterials; soils; groundwater; environmental engineering; toxicity; synthesis; nanotechnology

Among other fields, engineered nanoparticles can be used for environmental management, through the prevention or treatment and remediation of contaminated sites, or in improving soil fertility. Additionally, the combined use of nanotechnologies and biotechnologies for environmental remediation is an emerging and environmentally friendly method with significant scientific and economic potential. Engineered nanoparticles have already been successfully used for groundwater decontamination, and they also represent promising materials for the remediation of polluted soils and for improving soil fertility. The regulatory framework generally assumes that engineered nanoparticles possess toxicity and risk equivalent to those materials with larger particles, but the smaller size of engineered nanoparticles results in entirely different physical–chemical and toxicological properties.

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2022
