Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

I was honoured to be invited by the Editor of Polymers (MDPI) to serve as a guest editor for this Special Issue, entitled “Advanced Biopolymer-Based Composites”. It is our intent with this issue to connect researchers from the community of polymers with the biopolymer composites community and foster a deeper mutual understanding of the expertise and experience each community has developed.

This Special Issue is motivated by recent remarkable achievements in green technology in material science through the development of biopolymer-based composites. Biopolymer-based composites have demonstrated great potential for various applications owing to their advantages, such as low cost, sustainability, and biodegradability.

This Special Issue is oriented toward innovations and improvements in biopolymer-based composites. Topics covered include the manufacturing of biopolymer-based composites, advanced multiple functionalities (physical, chemical, and biological functionalities), original designs for biopolymer-based composites, composites recycling, matrix interactions, and the advanced applications of biopolymer-based composites in water treatment, filtration, tissue engineering, wound dressing, drug delivery, food packaging, energy storage, electronic devices, and intelligent sensors, among others.

Submitted manuscripts (research papers, reviews, communications, letters, and perspectives will all be considered) should not have been published previously nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscripts will be refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for the submission of manuscripts are available on the journal’s website.

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.
