Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

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.

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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2200 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.
