Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent decades, significant progress in the science of biomaterials has been made. Hydroxyapatite deserves special attention, as it is an analogue of biogenic apatite, the main inorganic component of bone tissue. Synthetic hydroxyapatite is widely applied in medicine as a filler for bone defects, a material for implants, a carrier for drug delivery and an anticancer/imaging agent, and a base of cements or various composites. Hydroxyapatite is also used as a bioactive component of toothpastes and cleaning products. In addition to being an indispensable material for medicine, hydroxyapatite has many other applications, as it is a catalyst or catalyst support for various organic reactions and an effective sorbent for protein, water, soil, and air purification. It is used in the form of gels, pastes, powders, and ceramics.

A wide range of useful properties of hydroxyapatite indicate the great potential of this material and stimulate further research activity. This list of properties can be extended by implementing substitution in the hydroxyapatite structure, as the insertion of foreign ions with useful properties transfers them to the material.

This Special Issue is dedicated to recent advances in the studies of hydroxyapatite and materials based on their production, characterization, and application in various fields.

For this Special Issue, we invite authors to contribute research articles or reviews on the above-mentioned topics.

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. Materials 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 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.
