Click chemistry, in its various guises, has, arguably, had a transformational impact on facile approaches to macromolecular modification. While the versatility and (bio)orthogonality of the Cu-catalyzed alkyne-azide reaction has been repeatedly demonstrated many other ‘click’ reactions are still very much in their infancy with respect to applications in macromolecular synthesis and modification.
This special issue of Polymers aims to highlight recent advances in the applications of ‘click’ chemistry in macromolecular science and will serve as a primary source for both new and experienced practitioners of these remarkable chemistries.

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. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly 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 500 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
