We invite researchers to submit innovative and original works to this Special Issue “Membrane Coatings for Surface Bio-modifications”. Membrane coatings involve a variety of platform surface technologies that need inter- and multi-disciplinary approaches to work with. Since there are various biological and clinical applications that need spectacular functions, different bio-modifications via physical, chemical or biological methods on membrane coatings could enable the surfaces to become bioactive, bioinert, biostatic, biocidal and so on, or even multi-functional. Thus, the aim of this Special Issue is to present the latest experiments, technologies, and trials, by highlighting membrane coatings through a combination of original research papers, review articles, and trial papers from leading groups around the world.
In particular, the topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Physical membrane for bio-modifications;
- Chemical membrane for bio-modifications;
- Biological membrane for bio-modifications;
- Clinical trial and animal trial;
- Techniques of coating and fabrication;
- Biological interaction with membrane coatings;
- Biofunctional coatings.

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 papers will be 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. Coatings 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 1600 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.
The below list represents only planned manuscripts. Some of these manuscripts have not been received by the Editorial Office yet. Papers submitted to MDPI journals are subject to peer-review.
