Natural polymers play an important role in sustainable development. Natural-polymer-based materials have received significant attention in recent years due to their potential applications in various fields, such as environmental protection, medicine, the cosmetics and food industries, and agriculture.
In recent years, there has been an increase in interest in obtaining new types of natura-polymer-based materials due to their biocompatibility and biodegradability.
This Special Issue on "Innovative Materials Based on Natural Polymers: Synthesis, Characterization and Applications" aims to provide an overview of innovative materials, mainly derived from natural polymers, which follow the principles of green chemistry, a circular economy, and sustainability, with applications in various fields.
I am pleased to invite you to submit research articles or reviews to this Special Issue.
