Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Chitosan, in which the N-acetylglucosamine moiety is a structural feature found in glycosaminoglycans, and gelatin, the partially denatured derivative of collagen, exhibit related bioactivities and biocompatibilities as their precursors. Chitosan- or gelatin-based functional biomaterials have attracted increasingly more attention. These functional biomaterials have promising perspectives in medicine, catalysis, absorbents, fine chemicals, and so on. Both biological polymers are convenient in the construction of novel nanoparticle composites. This Special Issue will mainly cover novel developments in the preparation, structure, and properties of hybrid nanocomposites based on biological macromolecules (chitosan, gelatin, and their derivatives).

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. 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.
