Interests: organic chemistry; bioorganic chemistry; fluorine chemistry; medicinal chemistry; sustainable chemistry
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
During the last ten years, a significant progress has been observed worldwide in biodegradable polymers (both of natural and synthetic origin) and polymeric nanoformulations (nanocarriers). Because of their intrinsic properties, they have become the preferred materials in the development of new and modern therapeutic systems. Biodegradable polymers with specific physical, chemical, biological, biochemical, and degradation properties have become essential for therapy to be effective. We will focus on biodegradable polymers (design, synthesis and biomedical applications) playing a key role as carrier materials for a controlled and targeted release of drugs into the organism.
Along with biodegradable polymers, we wish to also focus on polymeric organic nanocarriers (polymer-based micelles, liposomes, dendrimers), nanostructured systems for drug delivery applications, and nanoplatform elaboration for therapeutic applications.

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. Molecules 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.
