Size matters, and this holds particularly true in the world of macromolecules. Their size influences materials properties significantly, and, additionally, synthetic and natural polymers exist in broad size distributions. Their separation and reliable characterization is one of the most important issues in polymer analysis. The development of novel functional macromolecules requires advanced multifaceted analysis. Appropriate separation according to size requires new and sophisticated combination of separation approaches and detection. In this Special Issue, recent results on new separation approaches for advanced polymer systems, the development of novel detection techniques and theoretical considerations of size separation processes will be collected.

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. Separations 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 350 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.
