Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

While even nonfunctionalized polymers are widely used, polymers bearing functional groups and moieties are the most popular of the compounds produced by the industry. Functionality defines peculiar properties that make the corresponding polymers interesting, for example, for medicine or the energy industry. There is an urgent need to develop an effective methodology for the synthesis of structurally new polymer architectures in order to uncover novel valuable properties that surpass those previously achieved. New discoveries are possible in the future, and some have perhaps already been found. This Special Issue intends to be a space for such interesting discoveries.

We invite you to submit a manuscript—full paper, communication, or review—reporting new results of functional monomers and polymer design, demonstration of their properties, and identification of structure–property relationships. The more novel structures and properties are demonstrated, the wider and deeper the knowledge about polymers will be.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
