Special Issue in Materials: Advanced Materials in the Preparation of Edible Films and Coatings
Research on novel bio coatings has grown in recent years, attracting interest from academic and industrial researchers worldwide, particularly in the biomedical applications of nanotechnology, driven by the outstanding benefits that their translation can offer, e.g., enhancement of sensitivity and efficacy and safety of existing diagnostic, treatment, and combination strategies.
In this Special Issue, we expect contributions from a broad community of scientists working on application of bio-based coatings in biology/medicine and interdisciplinary teams.
In particular, the topics of interest include but are not limited to the safety of novel biocoatings intended for use on humans.
- Coatings with antimicrobial properties;
- Coatings preparation through green chemistry strategies;
- Coatings with added natural functional ingredients;
- Applications of bio-based coatings.

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.

Title: Micro-CT and X-ray evaluation of the effectiveness of chitosan coatings in alveolar ridge preservation: A preclinical study
Highlights: - The influence of dental implant coatings on crestal bone loss has not been thoroughly investigated. - Our study coated implants with a natural product (chitosan). - We used a suitable model (canine mandible). - We evaluated the crestal bone loss in the first weeks, which are decisive for the long-term survival of the implants.
