Composite and nanocomposite films, including biopolymers, have attracted worldwide attention thanks to their ability to support cell adhesion and growth factor liberation, and provide structural support to tissues and organs. Furthermore, depending on the nanofillers or composite design, antimicrobial properties can be introduced, of immense relevance for medicine. For example, chitosan and carbon nanomaterials are known strategies to add antimicrobial support without compromising the biocompatibility of the films.
This Special Issue, “Antimicrobial and tissue engineering applications,” aims to cover the latest developments regarding the synthesis, functionalization, characterization, and application of antimicrobial and biocompatible films in tissue engineering and wound dressing fields. It represents an excellent opportunity for researchers to present their latest work to address the fundamental aspects and applied research within this field. This Special Issue will also highlight new challenges in efficiently producing or designing film-specific applications.
Full articles, short communications, or review articles are welcome.

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.
