Special Issue in Polymers: Fullerene Influenced Polymers
A significant rise in the number of innovative applications and devices utilizing advanced molecular level engineering is currently the major focus of intensive research. Molecular engineering is an interdisciplinary discipline, encompassing various aspects of materials science and engineering, chemical engineering, bioengineering, electrical and electronics engineering, mechanical engineering and basic sciences (chemistry, biology and physics). Novel molecules (e.g., graphene) and/or their cleverly strategized combinations (i.e., hybridisation or composite processing) are subjects of wide and impactful research for their utilization in a number of applications like petrochemical, energy, construction, biomedical, transportation, aerospace, defence, telecommunication, sporting goods and infrastructure development.
This Special Issue will focus on the preparation, processing, development and application of novel molecules, molecular arrangements and/or their combinations (i.e., composite science and technology). This open-access Issue intends to cover the radical step-change in the capabilities and application of molecules in an engineering context with a clear focus on materials science and related applied sciences. Original articles and reviews are welcome. However, research articles, which include practical experimental results and critical theory, are particularly encouraged, as are papers, which set advanced molecular engineering in the wider context of, for example, society, economics, energy and environment.

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. Molecules 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.
