This Special Issue is dedicated to the first of the Polymers conference series "Polymers: Design, Function and Application", organized by MDPI and its open access journal Polymers. The first of inaugural conference will be held as a two-day event in Barcelona, Spain, 21–23 March, 2018.
With its focus on function- and application-driven polymer research, the conference aims to address the development and testing of the next generation of polymeric materials with previously unrivaled properties for advanced applications. Participants of the conference are cordially invited to contribute original research papers to this thematic issue. We welcome cutting-edge researches at the interface of design/function or function/application of polymers.
Please note that all submissions are subject to a 20% discount.Prof. Dr. Alexander Böker
