Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Biopolymers display versatile properties with applications in medicine, pharmaceutical, food packaging, electronics, tissue engineering, agriculture, and forestry. Promising physicochemical and bioactive properties have established their use as wound dressing materials, and in cosmetics too. Proteins are one of the most studied biopolymers, which play an important task in recognition, bioenergetics, and interactions in biologically relevant model systems. This issue provides an opportunity to discuss trends in the field of biopolymers for medical, macromolecules, and food applications.
