Carbohydrates polymers, the most abundant natural biomaterials, provide a versatile platform for various biomedical applications due to multifaceted structural and functional properties like antimicrobial activity, cellular interaction, crosslinking ability, protein binding to design desired biomaterials. Inherent biocompatible and biodegradable properties of polysaccharides attract to derive functional biomaterial. Polysaccharides take part in crucial functions of organisms including cellular communication, inflammation, infection development and disease, that make them the most sought-after biomaterials in form of drug delivery devices, tissue engineering, cell targeting, antibacterial, regenerative medicines, organoid scaffolds, medical device coating, etc. The science of public health is to protect and improve the health of people and their communities. The relevance of Public Health in COVID-19 emergency situation is notably recognized worldwide. Study reporting importance of carbohydrate polymers in controlling disease outbreaks would be highly welcomed. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) developed with carbohydrate polymers could comprehend safe, environment-friendly, recyclable and/or antimicrobial properties. The versatile characteristics of carbohydrate polymers and growing interest in their biomedical applications lead us to invite you submit your research work to this special issue in the form of a new research article or a systematic review of existing literature.

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. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2500 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.
