Petroleum-based plastics are restricted by petrochemical raw materials and their harmful effects on the ecological environment. Natural polymers are widely found in animals and plants, such as cellulose, starch, protein, lignin, natural rubber, nucleic acid, etc. Natural polymers as well as their derivatives are bio-renewable and biodegradable, and environmentally friendly. However, pure natural polymer materials often do not meet people's increasing and diverse needs. Therefore, research on the modification of natural polymers, natural polymer derivatives and the application performance has a great value. This Special Issue focuses on this topic, aiming to collect the latest research articles and communications, as well as comprehensive reviews, etc.
