Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The development of supramolecular polymers over the last few decades has largely gone hand-in-hand with progress relating to the synthesis and characterization of new efficient and stimuli-responsive supramolecular building blocks. Great strides have been made in transforming these academically interesting macromolecules into assemblies with a range of applications, which concern advanced materials, medicine, and catalysis. In this Special Issue, we invite submissions focusing on new developments relating to the synthesis, self-assembly, and function of supramolecular polymers.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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 monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF.
