Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue aims to bring together articles on the application of various conducting polymers and electrochemically and chemically deposited polymeric structures (including nanostructures) that can be utilized for a number of technological applications, including anticorrosion coatings, coatings for electromagnetic shielding, solar cells, “smart windows”, electrochromic devices, organic electronics, bioelectronics, biomedical devices, sensors, and biosensors. Significant attention will be given to conducting polymers which improve charge transfer and are applied in the design of enzymatic biosensors and affinity sensors. Some conducting polymers can be used as redox mediators and even be involved in direct charge transfer from redox enzymes. Articles that discuss the application of conducting polymers combined with nanomaterials (gold-based nanomaterials, carbon-based nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, graphene, reduced graphene, nanodiamond, etc.) and semiconducting metal oxides (such as TiO2, ZnO, WO3, V2O5 and many others) are also welcome. Research addressing the development of immunosensors based on conducting polymers will be also accepted.

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. Coatings 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 1800 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.
