Polymer Analysis

A section of Polymers (ISSN 2073-4360).

Section Information

The Section “Polymer Analysis” of Polymers aims to rapidly publish contributions on all aspects of polymer characterization. In fact, it is very important to characterize polymer-based systems (such as polymers, copolymers, and micro-and nano-polymer composites, just to name a few) in order to establish strong structure–property relationships. These characterizations can potentially lead both to a deep knowledge of the materials’ performances and to the possibility of choosing the best performing systems for specific applications. We encourage the submission of manuscripts that provide novel competently researched articles and reviews that report on significant advances in the field. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Characterization and analysis of polymers, polymeric materials and polymer additives;
  • Characterization of polymerization mechanisms;
  • Characterization of polymer systems through advanced spectroscopy methods;
  • Structure-property relationships in polymers and polymer composites;
  • Surface properties of polymer systems;
  • Measurement of molecular mass, size, conformation in polymer systems;
  • Morphological characterization of polymers and polymer micro- and nano-composites;
  • Mechanical behavior of polymers and polymer micro- and nano-composites;
  • Rheological behavior of polymers and polymer micro- and nano-composites;
  • Thermal behavior of polymers and polymer micro- and nano-composites;
  • Flame retardancy of polymers and polymer micro- and nano-composites;
  • Structure-property-processing relationships in polymers and polymer micro- and nano-composites;
  • Biodegradability of polymers and polymer micro- and nano-composites.
