In recent years, the emergence of new environmental standards and the need for modern effective biodegradable medical materials have led to the development of new green and biodegradable polymer composites. Bio-based and biodegradable polymers have great potential and a number of advantages for the production of eco-friendly and biomedical materials. However, further development and application of such materials require their improvement. Modification of polymers with functional fillers and reinforcing agents can significantly alter the mechanical and physicochemical characteristics, as well as the biological properties of polymer material. The combination of bio-based and biodegradable polymers with fillers/reinforcements of various chemistries, dimensions, and geometries can lead to a higher level of diversity provided by composite materials compared to just polymeric ones.
Following the success of the previous Special Issue of Polymers (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/polymers/special_issues/bio_based_polym_compos), we are delighted to launch a second edition of the Special Issue, now entitled “Advances in Bio-Based and Biodegradable Polymeric Composites II”. The aim of this Special Issue is to overview and discuss current progress in terms of science and technology of bio-based and biodegradable polymeric composites. Topics of interest include all aspects of the manufacturing, characterization, and application of such composites, as well as theoretical studies in the field.

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. Polymers 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.
