Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue attends to recent advances in and the emerging applications of diverse polymer materials, including adhesives, biopolymers and nanocomposites, among others. This Special Issue aims to collect recent experimental and numerical studies that focus on polymer chemistry and polymer physics in order to demonstrate the principals of this natural phenomenon. The Special Issue will incorprate several aspects of polymers, from original and fundamental research in academia, to the challenges encountered regarding their application in various domains, such as the environment, energy, biology, information, and nanotechnology. We welcome the submission of articles that focus on topics that include, but are not limited to, the following: polymer synthesis and modification (polymerization/polymer architecture), multiscale processing techniques (nanocomposites/polymer blends), films and coatings (surface/ interfacial characteristics), modelling and simulation of polymer properties (dynamics/thermodynamics), molecular organization (self-assembly/crystallization), technological applications with novel functionalities (electro-/thermo-/opto-responsive polymers), and state-of-the-art experimental and characterization techniques at the bulk, solution, and molecular level (spectroscopy/scattering).

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.
