Dear Colleagues, Biodegradable polymers are materials that can decompose naturally through the action of microorganisms, making them a promising solution to address the environmental problems associated with conventional plastics. Research on biodegradable polymers is crucial to advance their development and find new applications that contribute to sustainable practices.The importance of biodegradable polymers research is related to their potential benefits in various fields, including packaging, agriculture, medicine, and textiles. In the packaging industry, for example, biodegradable polymers offer a viable alternative to traditional plastics, reducing the accumulation of waste in landfills and oceans. In agriculture, biodegradable polymers can be used as mulch films, reducing soil erosion and improving crop yields. In medicine, biodegradable polymers can be used for drug delivery systems and tissue engineering applications, providing a safer and more effective treatment for patients. In textiles, biodegradable polymers offer a sustainable solution to the fashion industry's environmental impact.

As the demand for sustainable materials continues to grow, biodegradable polymers research becomes increasingly necessary to ensure that these materials meet the required standards of performance, cost-effectiveness, and safety. Moreover, research in this field can lead to the discovery of new biodegradable polymers with unique properties and applications, expanding their use and contributing to the development of a circular economy.

In conclusion, research on biodegradable polymers is essential to address the environmental challenges associated with conventional plastics and to promote sustainable practices in various industries. To further advance the development of biodegradable polymers, it is imperative to amass a comprehensive body of research in this field. Hence, we highly encourage the submission of research articles and reviews to contribute to the ongoing dialogue on biodegradable polymers. Our team is enthusiastically looking forward to receiving submissions in this area of study, as it will greatly contriubute to expanding  understanding of biodegradable polymers and their applications, and ultimately drive progress towards more sustainable solutions.

We welcome your valuable contributions.
