Special Issue Information
Natural and synthetic polymers are macromolecules that are broadly applied in our daily life, such as celluloses, starches, silks, polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, poly(ethylene terephthalate), and nylons. Their properties for versatile applications are mainly determined by their molecular and aggregation structures. The Special Issue of this journal aims to expose the importance of structure-property relationships in polymers and specialty applications. The authors and their contribution titles are selected to cover the broad range of this field. Theories, simulations, and experiments are welcome to reflect the cutting-edge knowledge on this interdisciplinary subject. The structure-property relationship will remain the central topic in polymer physics and promises a bright future for the materials genome of polymers.

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. 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 2300 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.
