Enzyme immobilization is one of the widespread modern industrial biotechnologies. Since the commercial use of the first immobilized enzymes in the 1960s, enzyme immobilization technologies and theories as well as immobilization materials and chemistry have rapid development. The enzyme immobilization allows to achieve more stable, active, and reusable biocatalysts. However, the choice of immobilization matrices is often empirical, and it is needed to be improved and standardized by the application of modern methods such as in silico design, protein and polymer engineering. Also, the rationalization of the immobilization procedure, i.g. pH and temperature, has a significant impact on the activity of the creating catalysts. For many enzymes and polymers, these problems remain unresolved, and this Special Issue is intended to enhance theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of enzyme immobilization on various polymers.
This Special Issue welcomes full papers and short communications highlighting the aspects of the current trends in the area of the enzymes immobilized on polymers.

Manuscript Submission Information
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.
