Conjugated molecules, such as π-conjugated polymers, s-conjugated polymers, through-space conjugated polymers, their oligomers, etc…, are often described as “molecular wire”, in which charges and energy are transported. In the field of molecular electronics, the molecular wire would be expected for essential parts to connect single molecular devices such as transistor and rectifier, leading to the ultimate bottom-up nanotechnology. This special issue is focused on synthesis and properties of conjugated polymers and oligomers; especially, discussions of fundamental electronic and optical characteristics of the single molecule are of importance.

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.
