Special Issue "OxiZymes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2020).
Interests: oxidative enzymes; metalloproteins; biocatalysis; protein radicals; electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR); enzyme immobilization; chitinolytic materials; biomaterials
This Special Issue is linked to the 10th edition of the “OxiZymes” conference, which will be held on September 22–25, 2020 in Siena, Italy. The purpose of the meeting is to stimulate scientific research on the discovery and mode of action of oxidoreductases and their industrial applications. Initially specifically devoted to research activities on laccases and peroxidases, this series of conferences is now open to contributions related to the whole class of oxidoreductases. The conference will provide a unique opportunity for industrial researchers to meet with foremost young academics for knowledge transfer and to establish research collaborations. The conference format is designed to be highly interactive, with ample time for stimulating discussions, interdisciplinary interactions, and meetings alongside the scientific sessions.
This Special Issue will cover the following topics:
- Newly discovered oxizymes;
- Oxizyme mechanism and structure;
- Oxizyme engineering and computational approaches;
- Artificial oxizymes and biomimetic cofactors;
- Preparative and biotechnological applications, including the following:
Oxizymes in fine chemicals;
Oxizymes in active pharmaceutical ingredients (API);
Oxizymes in food;
Oxizymes in biorefinery;
Oxizymes in biosensors;
Oxizymes in biomaterials applications.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
