This special issue of Polymers is dedicated to polymer blends. This subject has been a major area of polymer science and technology for almost five decades. The advances in this field have generated significant utility comprising a major component of available commercial polymeric materials. Topics of interest for this issue will include (but not be limited to) polymer miscibility studies, compatibilization methods, characterization methods, structure/property correlations, and application investigations. Papers directed towards the utility of polymer blends in emerging technologies including electronic materials, optoelectronics, membrane separation (gas or water), biomaterials, fuel cell membranes and new battery materials will particularly be of interest. The papers of this issue should be of interest to investigators in polymer science in academic, industrial and government institutions.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
