Special Issue Information
It is my great pleasure to invite you to contribute research or review articles to a Special Issue of Pharmaceutics entitled Ionic Liquids in Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Applications. The application of ionic liquids (ILs) and deep eutectic solvents (DESs) in the biomedical sphere has gained increasing attention recently, mainly due to their unique properties and tunability, which allows for the development of materials with specific functions that can meet appropriate requirements. In the areas of pharmaceutics and biomedicine, ILs and DESs have already been used as active pharmaceutical ingredients and drug delivery systems, including nanoformulations. Moreover, their unique properties allow them to be used as antimicrobial, antifungal, and antiviral agents, as stabilizers for both drugs and proteins, and in biosensing applications.
This Special Issue aims to present recent trends and developments, including discussions about fundamental aspects and their applicability. Moreover, it will allow us to identify current challenges and future directions in the use of ionic liquids and deep eutectic solvents in pharmaceutics and biomedicine.
Original research papers, communications, review articles, and opinions are welcome.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
Dr. Roksana Markiewicz
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. Pharmaceutics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
