Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Naturally derived polysaccahrides originating from microorganisms, plant, and animals are driving a paradigm shift in modern materials science and technology due to their advantageous properties, including biocompatibility, biodegradability, intrinsic bioactivity, and diverse chemical properties. Moreover, the chemical, physical, and biological properties of polysaccahrides can be altered to meet the diverse requirements of their applications in the preparation of functional materials, drug delivery, antibacterial, antivirus, and bioremediation. A comprehensive study covering the types, structures, properties, and applications is of great importance for facilitating the design of more effective bionanomaterials for various desired purposes in the near future.

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.
