Alginate is a natural polysaccharide derived from brown seaweed that has been used in a variety of applications in the biomedical, energy, and industrial fields, including in food, textile printing, and others. This Special Issue will highlight new polymeric formulations consisting of alginate or chemically modified alginate for (1) diverse biomedical research, such as that into controllable drug delivery, enhanced tissue sealing, and therapeutic responses applicable for acute/chronic diseases; and (2) industrial manufacturing (e.g., 3D/4D printing). The articles will focus on preparation methods and the unique physicochemical properties and mechanical stability of these alginate formulations (e.g., hydrogels, films, and particles), as well as descriptions of their multi-functionality for further design applications.
