Interests: investigation on properties and applications of biopolymers; specific chemical modifications of nano-cellulose and production of adsorption material; materials for environmental protection/energy applications
I have been asked by the Editor of Polymers (MDPI) to coordinate a Special Issue entitled, “Biopolymers: from Preparation to Application”.
Biopolymers are polymers produced by living organisms. Cellulose, starch and chitin, proteins and peptides, DNA and RNA are all examples of biopolymers, in which the monomeric units are sugars, amino acids, and nucleotides, respectively. Biopolymers and their derivatives are diverse, abundant and important for life. With the progress of modern material science, many products based on biopolymers have been developed, including films, fibers, nanoparticles, composite materials (involving fibers, solid particles, etc.), hydrogels, polymeric complexes, nanoporous scaffolds, etc. This Special Issue is motivated by the observed growing interest in the design, fabrication and application of these biopolymers.
Considering your prominent contribution in this interesting research field, I would like to cordially invite you to submit a paper to this Special Issue through the webpage of the journal (S.I. “Biopolymers: from Preparation to Application”). The submitted manuscripts will then be fast-track reviewed. I would very much appreciate it if you could let me know if you are interested in contributing a paper, at your earliest convenience. Research articles, review articles, perspectives, as well as communications and letters are also invited.

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.
