SMART NANOCONTAINERS:  RECENT DEVELOPMENTS AND APPLICATIONS
  • 23-August-2018

Nanocontainer is a nanosized volume, which contained the active substances in its interior. The smart nanocontainers are typically related with the smart releasing property for their embedded active substances. These smart releases could be obtained by using the smart coatings as their outer nanoshells. In this regard, the active agents could be released from nanocontainers by external or internal stimuli, which referred to the chemical/physical/biochemical changes within or surrounding of the nanocontainer.

 

On the other hand, nanocontainer can also refer to the nanoshells (i.e. nanocapsule). These nanoshells could prevent the direct contact between the active agents and the adjacent local environments. In addition, for drug-delivery applications, nanocontainer might also be referred to nanocarrier, as a transport module for the active drugs.

 

This special issue aims to explore how nanocontainers are used for various applications in smart coatings, drug delivery, molecular biology,

environment, anticorrosion, agri-food, gas storage.

 

We sincerely invite research papers, reviews, short communication and case reports addressing these issues.

 

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

 

Methods for synthesis of nanocontainers

Mechanism of loading and release in nanocontainers

Gages in nanocontainers

Nanocontainers for the encapsulation and delivery of antioxidants/nutrients to food

Nanocontainers in food preservation

Nanocontainers as smart fertilizers

Nanocarriers for effective drug delivery

Nanocontainers for smart coatings

Nanocontainers for catalytic applications

Nanocontainers based adsorbents for wastewater treatment
