Special Issue in Forests: Methods and New Technologies for Wood Modification
Serveral countries have implemented strategies to shift from fossil fuel-based economies to biobased economies. This change requires the development of sustainable biorefining processes with low environmental impacts and new biobased building blocks as precursors for chemicals and polymers.
This Special Issue is focused on the production of new building blocks, chemicals, and polymers from biomasses using innovative and green processing technologies. The Special Issue will also include other topics, such as the structural characterization and applications of biobased products.
Advances in pretreatment processes;
Products and applications of biobased building blocks;

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.
