Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue “Polylactide-Based Materials: Synthesis and Biomedical Applications II” will be focused on the synthesis of polylactides and other polyesters with an emphasis on their self-assembly to nano- and microstructured materials. Research on complex structure formation via the self-assembly of block copolymers coupled with supramolecular interactions is welcome. Moreover, PLA and polyesters are biocompatible, and those macromolecules are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for biomedical applications; therefore, it is frequently used for the construction of drug delivery systems or bioresorbable scaffolds for tissue engineering. It is desirable to show the preparation of nano- and microparticles from obtained macromolecules with methods such as microfluidics or spray-drying. Their anticancer, antimicrobial, or antiviral properties are the topic of interest. In summary, this Special Issue seeks original research and review articles concerning the synthesis and functionalization of polyester-based materials and their biomedical applications.

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. Molecules 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 2700 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.
