Special Issue "Polysaccharides"
A special issue of Polymers (ISSN 2073-4360).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2018)
Prof. Dr. Jun-ichi Kadokawa
As polysaccharides have always been a hot topic, this Special Issue is motivated by the observed increasing interest shown by various research groups in this field, including naturally-occurring processes, extraction and purification from natural sources, chemical, crystalline, and higher-ordered structures, biocompatibility and biological functions, derivatization and modification, new synthetic methods, and applications as functional materials. However, topics are not limited to these studies, but cover all research areas concerning polysaccharides.
Considering your prominent contribution in this interesting research topic, I would like to cordially invite you to submit an article to this Special Issue. This Special Issue will publish full research papers, communications, and review articles. I would like to bring together a collection of comprehensive reviews from leading experts and up-to-date researches from notable groups in the community.
The manuscript should be submitted online before 30 November 2018. I would very much appreciate if you would consider being one of our authors.
Prof. Dr. Jun-ichi Kadokawa
