Special Issue "Plasma Polymerized Materials"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 July 2019
It is well documented that surfaces exposed to low pressure glow discharges of organic vapors are coated with a solid polymer film. This phenomenon is now known as ‘plasma polymerization’. First used in 1960 for parts of nuclear batteries, plasma polymerization has been employed for a large number of applications, and significant research was conducted in the synthesis, application, and characterization of plasma polymer films. Plasma polymerization is a substrate-independent process by which polymer films can be deposited onto almost all solid materials including metals, ceramics, polymers and even low-cost natural materials. Plasma polymer films only influence the surface of a substrate without altering the bulk properties. Plasma polymerization is also a solvent-free and environmentally friendly process producing virtually no waste. Plasma polymer films are chemically and physically stable, homogeneous, void free, highly cross-linked, and often highly adherent to the substrate. Such unique properties of plasma polymer films have led to recent exciting developments, such as biocompatible, anti-bacterial, adhesive, super-hydrophobic, anti-fouling, and barrier coatings. In this Special Issue “Plasma Polymerized Materials for Water Treatment” the scope will be on novel plasma ploymerized materials and their fabrication processes for potential use in water treatment.Prof. Peter Majewski
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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
