Special Issue "Materials for Drug Delivery and Biomedical Consideration"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 March 2017).
School of Pharmacy, Faculty of Science and Engineering, University of Wolverhampton, Wulfruna Street, Wolverhampton WV1 1LY, United Kingdom
Interests: particulate delivery systems; nanotechnology; target drug delivery; drug formulation; biomaterials and tissue regeneration
Particles are a common form of materials that can be prepared for drug delivery in pharmaceutical applications. They can be made into popular solid dosage forms, such as tablets and capsules, for controlled drug release, or suspensions (solubilizing active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) through nano-dispersion and grafting) at micro- and nano- scales. At micro-scale, particulate flow, transfer and compaction dictate the properties of the products made of these materials, while at nano- scale, particulate delivery systems can be used as the passive target module for cancer treatment. This Special Issue aims to cover the state-of-the art research or review with relevance to materials for formulations and materials for drug delivery systems. In particular, manuscripts concerning these materials at micro- or nano-scales are most welcome. The subjects of manuscripts can include, but are not limited to, the following themes: Nanotechnology for particulate delivery systems, pharmaceutical materials synthesis and characterization, particulate materials for drug delivery, nano-coating and fillers for pharmaceutical applications, and adsorbent nanomaterials for active pharmaceutical ingredient separation and analysis.

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.
