Open Call for Papers: Stimuli-responsive materials for biomedical applications

Journal of Materials Chemistry B is pleased to announce an open call for papers for the upcoming themed collection on stimuli-responsive materials for biomedical applications.

This collection will be Guest edited by:


Prof. Yanli Zhao, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

Dr. Mary Beth Browning Monroe, Syracuse University, United States.

Prof. N. D. Pradeep Singh, Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India.


This themed collection from the Journal of Materials Chemistry B is focused on recent developments in stimuli-responsive biomaterials.

A large number of stimulus methods have been deployed in functional materials for various biological and biomedical applications, such as (i) photo-responsive materials, (ii) pH-responsive materials, (iii) temperature-responsive materials, and (iv) biologically responsive materials.

This issue aims to cover recent progress on stimuli-responsive materials for biomedical applications, including their design, synthesis, characterization, and applications related to biology and medicine.



If you would like to contribute to this themed collection, you can submit your article directly to the online submission service for the Journal of Materials Chemistry B. Please mention that this submission is a contribution to the Stimuli-responsive biomaterials collection in the “Themed issues” section of the submission form and add a “Note to the Editor” that this is from the Open Call. The Editorial Office reserves the right to check the suitability of submissions in relation to the scope of both the journal and the collection, and inclusion of accepted articles in the final themed issue is not guaranteed.


Journal of Materials Chemistry B publishes high impact work related to materials for biology and medical applications. By publishing this themed collection on ‘Stimuli-responsive materials’, we hope to feature complementary research within the topic field and to collect the most relevant and most recent work on the progress of stimuli-responsive biomaterials research. 


We look forward to receiving your submissions and featuring your latest work in this exciting collection!
