About the book

The book ""Polyethylene Glycol Solubility"" aims to provide an interdisciplinary analysis of current biological applications of poly (ethylene glycol) (PEG). It aims to include a wide array of topics useful to materials scientists, organic chemists, biochemists, and bioengineers interested in drug delivery systems, pharmaceuticals, and other biomaterials. The project welcomes topics like PEG-modified proteins, liposomes, drugs, surfaces of materials, and hydrogels, PEG-oligonucleotides and the toxicology of PEG and its derivatives.

Authors are not limited in terms of topic but encouraged to present a chapter proposal that best suits their current research efforts.
We accept scientific papers which can be presented as original research papers and review papers. The required length of the full chapters is 10-20 pages and the chapters should be original works (not republished).
As a self-contained collection of scholarly papers, the book will target an audience of practicing researchers, academics, Ph.D. students and other scientists. Since it will be published as an Open Access publication, it will allow unrestricted online access to chapters with no reading or subscription fees.
