Special Issue Information
In recent years, there has been increasing interest in marine pollution owing to several microplastics. One of the possible solutions to this problem is focused on the application of biodegradable plastics. However, there are very few studies on the biodegradation of plastics and polymers, especially in seawater or marine environment. With the opening of this Special Issue, “Marine Biodegradable Polymers”, we are planning to produce a strong, and very exciting issue that will encompass breakthroughs on highly valuable, scientific, and industrial research in this field.

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.
