Interests: separation membranes; functional polymer; organic thermoelectric devices; biomaterials
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Special Issue in Applied Nano: Advanced Nanomaterials for Photocatalytic Applications
Special Issue in Polymers: Advances in Biomaterials and Biobased Polymers
In the area of biomedical research, polymeric scaffolds are an important class of material due to its biomimicry and better bioactivity. Functional polymeric microspheres play a crucial role as scaffolds for targeted delivery of bioactive materials in a controlled manner to enhance its efficiency. Magnetic functional polymers beads are another kind of reusable system used for removal of various types of pollutants.
This Special Issue is designed to cover research progress in functional polymer microspheres and beads for application in biomedical research and environmental science.
Topics include but are not limited to:
- Synthesis of novel polymer microsphere for use as scaffolds in biomedical research.
- Injectable polymer microsphere as drug/bioactive molecule carrier for biomedical application.
- Preparation of functional polymeric beads for application in environmental science.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2700 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.
