The Special Issue on “Graphene-based Polymer Composites” aims to provide a forum for the publication of original research/review articles concerning graphene-filled polymer composites. The scope of the special issue encompasses all types of graphene-filled polymeric composites (e.g., rubbers, plastics, conducting polymers, bio-polymers, adhesives, etc.). The issue covers all branches and aspects of novel processing techniques, testing methods, and standards, along with their applications, to meet product development demands.
Authors may highlight the novel surface modifications of graphene that produce composites; they may discuss the preparation of graphene-based filler materials or the composites’ applications. However, this Special Issue mainly concentrates on investigating the superior, physicochemical properties of the composites (as compared with conventional materials). Authors are encouraged to submit their original works highlighting the applications of the composites in various areas, such as in electronics, energy storage, automobiles, aerospace engineering, infrastructure, recreational products, and in any other functional materials.

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 monthly journal published by MDPI.
