Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Polymer composites are a special class of polymers that include natural, synthetic, and biocomposites. In this Special Issue, we would like to highlight the application of polymer composites in the food industry and environment remediation. Regarding the food industry, we welcome the submission of reports on antimicrobial and biodegradable polymer composites for active food packaging applications. In the area of environment remediation, novel, biodegradable and recyclable materials that could be used in soil and water remediation are encouraged to be published in this Issue.

In addition, we would like to receive papers on both synthetic and natural polymers, as well as composites of inorganic and organic materials.

Dr. Liying Zhu
Guest Editor
