Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The challenges that our society is facing, now more than before, impose a strict cooperation between the academic world and the industrial sector. Oftentimes, these two different entites have walked separately in the complicated world of science, due to both cultural preconceptions and real divergences owing to different goals. Eventually, this was reflected in a delay of innovation or nonrobust new materials and products. Merging the fundamental science with applied concepts is necessary for winning solutions, especially in a dynamic sector such as that of packaging.

The MATBIM 2019 meeting, running under the heading “…bridging the gap between Academia and Industry…”, will be the platform to bring together researchers from academia and industry to share new ideas and contribute the latest findings related to the packaging materials science and technology. The main goal is to boost the technological transfer from the research labs to real applications that may have an impact on our everyday lives.

The MATBIM2019 conference will focus on three main themes that are currently hot areas in the field of food and bioproduct packaging materials: (i) Mass transfer and food and bioproduct/material interactions; (ii) new trends toward environmentally friendly materials; and (iii) new materials through nanotechnology routes. Within these three main themes, several topics will be discussed during the conference, including transfer phenomena and toxicological/safety assessment, new materials from biomass and downgauging strategies, bottom–up/top–down approaches and hybrid materials, just to mention a few. Coatings will publish a selection of papers related to the meeting in the form of regualr articles as well as critical reviews and perspectives. Your contribution is very welcome!

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.

Flaxseed oil (FO) is composed mainly of polyunsaturated fatty acids that are very sensitive to oxidation induced by oxygen, temperature, and light. To overcome this problem, gelatin-based films containing glucose are crosslinked via the Maillard reaction (MR) at 120 °C and used for the conception of pouches in which the FO was packaged. The prepared pouches, as well as the oil alone, are incubated at 50 °C for 21 days. The results show that the peroxide index of the oil stored in the gelatin-based pouches is almost stable and decreases on the 21st day. The specific extinction coefficients prove a more pronounced degradation of the non-package oil (control). In addition, the results of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARs) test reveal higher values in the control, with a tendency to continuously increase up until the 21st day. However, the oil stored in the pouches reveals less TBARs content, decreasing with oxidation time. The non-heated glucose-supplemented pouches showed the best results, suggesting a moderate and gradual development of the MR at 50 °C. The application of pouches based on gelatin films seems to be an effective and interesting tool for protecting FO against lipid oxidation, acting as perfectly biodegradable and sustainable containers for small doses.
