Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of Polymers is dedicated to Advances in Flame Retardant Polymers. I wish to dedicate the Special Edition to my colleague and friend of 30 years, Professor Dennis Price, who sadly died in December last year at the age of 79. He was well known across the world for his 40 years active research within the field of flame retardant polymers.

While the science and technical applications of flame retardant polymers have developed considerably during the last few decades, there remains an increasing need to develop novel flame retardant polymers and polymeric systems. This is because of continuing and increasing challenges required to balance society’s desire to achieve higher levels of fire safety and technical performance on the one hand against its constraints posed by the need to minimize any potential toxicological properties and maximize environmental sustainability on the other. This issue invites original papers and reviews within the following areas:

  • Novel flame retardants and synergists
  • Flame retardant polymers having improved environmental sustainability
  • Developments in surface treatments and coatings
  • Flame retardant composites
  • Flame retardants for film and fiber applications
  • Novel flame retardant treatments for textiles
  • Characterization and testing of polymer burning behavior

Submission

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.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs).
