Nanoscience is regarded and acknowledged as a triumph of human ingenuity and the development of man is always marked by technological breakthroughs. The emerging field of nanotechnology is leading to a technological revolution in the world. It is the next industrial revolution and almost all industries will be radically transformed by it in few years and this technology will directly benefit the common man when it comes to commercial use. It has already established a beachhead in the economy.

A number of reviews and text books have been published, endorsing the status of the 21st centuries’ leading science and technology. The interface of nanoscience and technology with biological and therapeutic sciences is expected to radically improve the ability to provide efficient treatments. The production of advanced materials has brought increasing focus on nanomaterials due to their significant physical and chemical properties and surface effects. Not only materials scientists but also researchers from other disciplines such as physics, chemistry, biology and engineering have been involved in working on science and applications of nanostructured materials with varied emphasis on synthesis, processing, characterization and applications.

This special issue covers current trends and developments in nanomaterials. Papers may involve both the basic research and application developments relating to experimental, theoretical, computational and applications of nanomaterials. Research articles and review papers are invited; there may also be a small section for short communications.
