Special Issue in Gels: Cryogelation and Cryogels 2.0
Special Issue in Catalysts: Theoretical Modeling of Catalytic Processes: Challenges, Applications and Perspectives
This year it is 100 years to the polymer chemistry science. Macroporous polymeric scaffolds have attracted enormous attention from scientists and engineers to food, biomedicine, biosensors and heavy industry etc. Functional polymers have a great potential to manage many global ecological challenges in areas such removal of heavy metals, dyes and toxic contaminants.
We are pleased to invite you to contribute to a collection of research papers related to novel methods of cryogel preparation, new approaches of physical characterisation and chemical modification of cryogel surface, molecular imprinted(MIP) cryogels, separation of biomolecules using via ligand exchange mechanism (chelation) and ion exchange; nano and microparticles elimination, macroporous hydrogels acceptable for selective or nonselective extraction of noble metal ions; smart porous polymers based on inter and or polyelectrolyte complexes. Methods of preparation of composite cryogels composed of metal nanoparticles or metal oxide nanoparticles and polymers; usage of nontoxic modified cross-linking agents for synthesis of biocompatible scaffolds for biomedical application. Smart cryogels utilized for desalination of water.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following: Composite cryogels with given properties for biosensing; cryogels for efficient radionuclides separation or extraction; cryogels polymer-metal systems for catalysis. Cryogels as a drug delivery system

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. Gels 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.
