About This Topic

Metal nanostructures have received tremendous attention in the last decays. They possess size and shape-dependent properties that have found wide range of applications in chemical industries, environmental processes, and Nanobiomedicine. In this special issue, we encourage articles, which deal with the intrinsic properties of metal nanostructures or one of the three aforementioned applications, and provide an insight into the field. Due to the importance of education, we also encourage the tutorial review papers as well as the failed experiments conducted under certain conditions. In general, research articles (communication and full-length), review articles, and tutorial articles are encouraged to be submitted. All accepted papers will be published totally free of charge.
