Interests: colloids; emulsions; micelles; amphiphilic copolymers; controlled radical polymerization; drug-loaded systems; polysaccharides.
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This Special Issue will integrate fundamental research with the practical application of colloidal systems in the field of nanomedicine. Of practical interest are the copolymer-based drug-loaded colloidal systems, such as micelles, polymersomes, nanogels, liposomes etc., with diameters in the range of 1 nm to 400 nm. Another domain of interest is that of functionalized colloidal systems with specific ligands for active targeted drug delivery.
The authors will try to explain the correlations between the molecular structure of the colloidal systems and the encapsulation efficiency and/or the drug release kinetics. In vitro analysis of cell lines will is welcome but not mandatory. Regular research articles and reviews will be accepted for publication in 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. 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 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.
