You are invited to submit a research paper to this Special Issue entitled “Research Progress in Chitosan Applications”. During the past few decades, novel functional materials based on chitosan have been exploited for the most essential and challenging research fields. Owing to the notable versatility of chitosan, meaningful outcomes and applications have emerged, leading the progress and development of new perspectives in the controlled delivery of pharmaceuticals, plant biocontrol agents and tissue engineering as active platforms for electronic and wound healing devices, food packaging, flame retardant and the removal of toxic organic effluents and heavy metals. As a result, unprecedented opportunities are continuously arising and opening the path for advanced chitosan-based developments. We dedicate this Special Issue to highlighting the most recent achievements regarding chitosan applications and impactful knowledge for further innovative studies.
