Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue on “Design, Synthesis, and Bioapplications of Multifunctional Materials” is dedicated to the latest molecular advances in the preparation, properties, and applications of multifunctional materials, highlighting concepts, function–structure relationships, knowledge-based design, and translational materials research.

Multifunctional materials are designed to fulfill multiple responsibilities through suitable combinations of different functional capabilities and present specific desirable electronic, magnetic, optical, bioactive, biodegradable, or other properties to satisfy previously unreachable performance values.

We would like to invite all scientists, researchers, and scholars in the field of multifunctional materials and applications to submit their original studies or reviews regarding interdisciplinary areas, e.g., environmental-based technologies, packaging, biomedical fields, etc. The topics that will be covered in this Special Issue will include, but are not limited to, polymers, composite materials, fibers, metals, (nano)structured materials, biological materials, and biomedical materials. All research article or review submissions should cover research at the molecular level as well as verified experiments.

We kindly encourage you to submit a manuscript regarding one of the above topics to this Special Issue.

Dr. Raluca Nicoleta Darie-Nita

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
