Special Issue "Biobased Polymers"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 March 2020.
Interests: glycomaterials; glycotechnology; chemical and enzymatic synthesis; green chemistry; biobased materials
Biobased polymers, which are defined as sustainable polymeric materials produced from renewable biomass resources, are becoming some of the most important core materials in science and technology. Within this century, they are expected to replace the conventional oil-based polymers synthesized from fossil resources. To create a sustainable society, new technology and further development are required.
In this Special Issue, we aim to present valuable findings regarding “biobased polymers”. This research area covers diverse fields, including organic chemistry, polymer chemistry, microbiology, biotechnology, chemical engineering, materials science, and materials physics, and others.
Considering your prominent contribution to this extensively studied research topic, I would like to cordially invite you to submit an article to this Special Issue. Original articles, communications, and review articles discussing the latest findings in the field of biobased polymers are all welcome. I would be very grateful if you could consider being one of our authors.
Dr. Tomonari Tanaka
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. Materials 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 1800 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.
