Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The pharmaceutical and medical fields need new methods and solutions for approaching the rising number of health problems. All these illnesses need to be addressed and kept under control or cured, with improved drugs and novel techniques. In this idea, some solutions include the development of new drugs, updated and targeted delivery systems, or enhanced therapeutic methods. Hybrid materials are considered as a viable solution for the necessity of continuous progress in this area of research. Hybrid materials have gained a lot of attention lately due to the many advantages they can offer. Usually, a hybrid material manages to successfully combine an inorganic constituent and an organic constituent, two complementary types of materials. The hybrid is obtained through physical or chemical interactions. In addition, the synthesis process of these materials can be customised in order to produce specific properties and conduct targeted applications.

We invite you to contribute to this Special Issue with your work (research or review) regarding the use of hybrid materials in the pharmaceutical or medical field. We encourage the submission of topics about hybrid materials starting from their synthesis, characterisation and various applications (drug delivery, improved drug properties and action, new system therapies, etc.).

Dr. Roxana Racoviceanu
