Special Issue "Novel Applications of Biodegradable Nanocelluloses"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 December 2020.
Interests: polymers; thin films; organic semiconductors; synthetic organic chemistry; organic electronics
The development of biodegradable materials has been important for allowing deep comprehension of the properties and behavior of biodegradable polymeric nanoparticles. In particular, nanocelluloses deserve great attention as highly stable and crystalline biodegradable nanomaterials. This Special Issue aims to present new applications of biodegradable nanocelluloses and nanocellulose films in fields such as optoelectronics, nanophotonics, tissue engineering, materials consolidation, biocatalysis, and paper modification. Chemical modifications of the starting materials or preparation of blends with other materials or biomolecules for granting access to novel multifunctional and biohybrid structures are of particular interest for this Special Issue.
