Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cellulose, due to its natural abundance and unique properties, is undoubtedly one of the most promising renewable raw materials for the large scale production of chemicals, fuels, and materials in a biobased economy. The unique features of cellulose fibers make them one of the most promising resources for the development of a wide range of sustainable and functional materials, with applications such as composites, transparent films, biomedical devices and products packaging, organic electronics, special papers, among many others. In this sense, this special issue is aimed at reporting the most recent developments on cellulose based materials; covering all forms of cellulose, namely plant cellulose, cellulose whiskers, nanofibrillated and bacterial cellulose, as well as the relevant processing techniques (including fiber modification) to produce new and innovative composite (nano)materials, characterization techniques, properties and applications.
For this special issue we will invite authors to publish research articles or comprehensive reviews on the topics referred above.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly 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 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs).
