  • Introduction

    Today’s Biotechnology is an interdisciplinary field that has expanded beyond its core to areas as diverse as Biopharming (Medical/Clinical/Pharmaceutical biotechnology), Industrial, Environmental, Agricultural applications and Nanotechnology. This peer-reviewed special issue is dedicated to publication of original research articles examining the fundamental properties of biomaterials, their characterisation and processing techniques, modeling, standardization of test methods. A particular focus is the novel technologies implemented in biotechnology and for end use requirements of biomaterials.
    This special issue is a showcase for innovative researches in biotechnology and therefore calls for papers in these main topics including but are not limited to the following fields:
    1. Emerging fields of Biomaterials (Bioceramics/Biopolymers/Bioglasses)
    2. 3D printing technologies and their applications in Biomaterials
    3. Bio-materials in medicine,
    4. Bio/hybrid composite
    5. Biosensors
    6. Biologically inspired materials,
    7. Biorecycling
    8. Bioproduct production
    9. Characterization and modelling of biomaterials: processing, structure, functionality and applicative perspectives
    Within the above mentioned topics, funcitionality of examined biomaterials, novel techniques and emerging technologies will be discussed and evaluated in this special issue.
    Aims and Scope:
    1. Biomaterials in Medical, Industrial, Environmental Biotechnology
    2. Bioproduct production
    3. Characterization and modelling of biomaterials: processing, structure, functionality and applicative perspectives
    4. Role of nanotechnology and of the spectroscopic characterisation methods (SEM, AFM, FTIR, RAMAN, EPRC etc.)
    5. 3D printing technologies and their applications in Biomaterials
    6. Emerging fields of Biomaterials (Bioceramics/Biopolymers/Bioglasses)
