Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Conjugated polymers are a versatile class of organic functional materials which have attracted much interest for their optical and electronic properties, and their wide range of potential applications in organic electronic devices such as transistors, LEDs, solar cells, photodetectors, lasers, or sensors. Already many types of prototype devices have been made and some are now commercially available. In this issue we aim to present a range of articles on conjugated polymers as materials, with topics ranging from their synthesis and characterization through to their use in devices.

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. Materials 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 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs).
