Special issue: Advances in nanotechnology to ensure food safety, quality and functionality

Published 16 March, 2022


Nanoscale science, technology and engineering have revolutionised food processing and manufacturing in many ways; for example, they have provided innovative improvements to food safety, quality and functionality. Such innovations have driven a paradigm shift from perfecting traditional technology to developing new concepts and principles for exploring nano-enabled food applications. This special issue invites authors to submit high-quality and original research or reviews for publication on the use of nanotechnology for food-related applications.

Topics covered:

  • Discovery and structural characterisation of new food-derived nanomaterials
  • Encapsulation and delivery of bioactive compounds in nanoscale carriers
  • Synthesis of nanocomposites for sensing, packaging and edible coating applications in food
  • Preparation of antimicrobial nanoparticles for ensuring food safety and quality
  • Understanding molecular interactions among food materials to fabricate colloidal nanostructures
  • Manufacturing of novel nanomaterials by emerging processing technologies for diverse food applications
  • Investigation of nutritional and health benefits of nanostructures
