Nanoparticles are becoming key components in a wide range of applications. Research encompasses numerous disciplines, e.g. nanotechnology, molecular engineering, medicine, pharmaceutical drug manufacture, biology, chemistry, physics, optical components, polymer science, mechanical engineering, toxicology, cosmetics, energy, food technology and environmental and health sciences. IJNP highlights the chemical, physical and biological phenomena/processes associated with nanoparticles and nanostructures ranging from molecular size to 100nm which exhibit improved properties or have novel applications due to their size. Submicron nanoparticles are included in special cases.
Topics covered include
- Fundamental science and technology
- Characterisation and measurement
- Nanoparticle beams
- Inorganic materials and polymers
- Environmental impact
- Nanotoxicology and nanomedicine
- Nanoparticles in living systems
- Modifications of surfaces
- Food science
- Applications in catalytic/decorative/cosmetic industries
- Environmental remediation
- Energy applications
- Novel applications
IJNP provides a vehicle to help academics, researchers, industrial companies, trade associations, and policy makes in the fields of medicine, biology, manufacturing technology, materials science, engineering, biotechnology, nanotechnology, nanoelectronics and business to disseminate information and learn from each others’ work. It also aims at promoting and coordinating developments in the field of nanoparticles. The international dimension is emphasised in order to meet the latest needs of accelerating theoretical knowledge and practical verification of new technologies and products.
IJNP is intended to help professionals, academics, researchers, industrialists and policy-makers, working in the field of nanoparticle science and technology and their applications.
IJNP publishes original high quality papers, rapid communications in the form of letters to the editor, timely review papers, technical reports, book reviews, nano persectives and case studies. Special issues devoted to developments in important topics in nanoparticles research will be published. Such topics inlcude environmental impact of nanoparticles; nanotoxicology; nanoelectronics; biological nanoparticles; nanoparticles in medicine; nanoparticles in the cosmetics industry; nanoparticles for sustainable growth and in water purification; self assembled nanostructures; characterisation of nanoparticles; catalytic nanoparticles; nanoparticles in arerosols, biotechnology, emission control, sensors, microcontamination; and their use energy consumption.

Bright eyes makes better bactericide
8 January, 2020
An aqueous extract from the root of Catharanthus roseus, a plant commonly known as bright eyes, can be used as both a reducing agent as well as a capping agent for the synthesis of bactericidal silver nanoparticles, according to research published in the International Journal of Nanoparticles. Researchers from India and The Netherlands reveal details in the latest issue of the journal [...]More details...
