Interests: wood–polymer composite; surface treatment on interface interaction in bio-based materials
Bio-based materials such as wood, bamboo and their composites have attracted attention among researchers due to their eco-friendly nature. Moreover, their products have been used in daily life, such as in furniture, construction and even aerospace. However, owing to the drawbacks of natural polymers in cell walls, their applications undergo various challenges. Surface modification and protection can overcome the defects and even endow the bio-based materials with multi-functions, such as dimensional stability, hydrophobicity, anti-fungal properties and flame retardance. Many kinds of modification techniques have been reported to achieve the target in which the improvement on overall performances is expected. Driven by the current development state of ideas and techniques on modification, it is necessary to understand the mechanism of the modification and protection process. Further, we welcome papers that explore potential ideas for modification and protection.
This Special Issue will serve as a forum for papers focusing on the following concepts:
- Eco-friendly methods for the modification and protection of bio-based materials.
- Modification and protection with multi-functions.
- Experiments with new methods or characterizations on surface modification and protection.
- The development of mechanisms for the modification and protection of bio-based materials.
- Advanced materials preparation and characterization made from bio-based materials.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Coatings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
