Special issue on latest development of nanotechnology in Latin America.

Dear Authors

We are organising a special issue for Journal of Chemical Technology and Biotechnology (JCTB) (published by Wiley, Impact Factor = 2.75, https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10974660).  We would like to invite authors to submit contributions.

The theme of this special issue is Latest Development of Nanotechnology in Latin America. We would particularly encourage new academics for contribution as we aim to promote research works in nanotechnology with new ideas. Initially, we have set several key areas for the issue:

– Nanotechnology applied to sensors and biosensors

– Nanoparticles and its interactions with plants

– Risk assessment of nanomaterials

– Drug delivery systems

– Development of new functional organic, inorganic and hybrid materials

– Nanotechnology applied to gene transfer

– Molecular simulations in nanotechnology

– Bio-based nanomaterials aiming agriculture and environmental applications

– Magnetic nanomaterials and its applications

– Nanoparticles aiming topical applications

– Biomimetic silica nanoparticles

– Hybrid biofilms aiming for food applications.

We aim to set the deadline for December 31st and to publish the special issue online in 2021. JCTB does not impose publication charges but it provides open access options with a fee.

Once the invitation is accepted, please inform one of the Guest Editors prior to manuscript submission.
