Special Issue Information
This Special Issue entitled “Bioactive Materials with Antibacterial Properties” is devoted to the dissemination of high-quality original research articles or comprehensive reviews. Bioactive materials have a wide range of applications. Bioactive materials with antibacterial properties have attracted significant medical interest. Antibacterial bioactive materials can be obtained from nature or they can be synthesized in different ways. They can be prepared by the simple combination of antibacterial substances with materials such as metals or polymers. The delivery of these bioactive materials kills pathogenic bacteria. The emergence of multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria due to the uncontrolled, immoderate and multiple uses of antibiotics and chemotherapeutics is a serious threat to the world population. The development of a new antibacterial agent is the decisive solution for this issue. Therefore, bioactive materials with antibacterial properties could be promising agents to control these MDR bacteria.
We would like to invite researchers to contribute to this Special Issue. Research topics of interest cover one or several of the topics included in the keywords below (but are not limited to the following): synthesis/biosynthesis of different bioactive materials, natural compounds with antibacterial properties, synthesis of various nanoparticles with antibacterial properties, anti-biofilm activity, mode of action, mechanisms of antibacterial activity, etc.

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 2400 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.
