Special Issue "Collection of Papers in Materials Science from Croatia"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Interests: surface modification of textile materials; electrokinetic phenomena; detergents; textile care; UV functionalization; shedding of particles from textile materials; residual substances; surfactants; adsorption; desorption
Interests: interfacial phenomena of polymer multiphase systems (composites, nanocomposites and blends) and their synthesis; characterization and structure–property relationships; filler functionalization; surface engineering; adhesion materials; additives for polymer materials
Interests: textile and leather finishing and care; alternative washing methods; auxiliaries and enzymes in finishing and care; garment finishing; optical brighteners and UV absorbers in detergents; UV functionalization; hygiene and laundering of hospital protective textiles
The materials present a research challenge in chemical engineering, textile engineering, biotechnical, biomedical, medical, natural science and interdisciplinary fields of science. We would like that Croatian scientists present significant research potential in the development of materials, achievements in theoretical and experimental work and innovative and creative engineering approaches. Original papers, communications and reviews focused on new, sustainable, advanced and smart materials from macro to nano level, structures, surface modifications, mechanical properties, thermal properties, different characterization techniques, compatibility, technological solutions, and process improvements dedicated to progress in materials sciences are welcome.
We have the pleasure to motivate and invite you to submit a manuscript to the Special Issue “Collection of Papers in Materials Science from Croatia” for the journal Materials. Let us present research novelties in materials science; Let us increase the visibility of Croatian research potentials.

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 2000 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.
