I am cordially inviting you to contribute to a Special Issue of Polymers marking the upcoming Polymer Connect-2024 conference. The Special Issue, titled "Emerging Trends in Polymer Engineering: Polymer Connect-2024", will capture cutting-edge advancements and innovative research presented at this conference in the field of polymer science.

Polymer Connect-2024 will attract a diverse audience of industry professionals and academic experts interested in exploring the latest technologies and developments in polymer science. Through oral presentations and posters, participants can engage with a wide array of themes, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • The characterization of synthetic and natural polymers;
  • Polymers in chemistry;
  • Polymer hybrids and nanocomposites;
  • Polymer biomaterials and tissue engineering;
  • Polymers for human health;
  • Biomedical and biodegradable polymers;
  • Polymer recycling and re-use;
  • Polymers in the environment;
  • Functional polymers;
  • Polymers in energy.

This conference is a unique platform for professionals from various sectors of the polymer and material science industry to collaborate, exchange ideas, and showcase their latest innovations. Attendees can network with peers, explore potential collaborations, and gain valuable insights into the latest trends and developments shaping the future of polymer science.

We believe that your expertise and contributions would greatly enrich the content of this Special Issue. Your research interests align closely with the themes and objectives of the conference, making your insights invaluable to our readership. We invite you to submit a manuscript for consideration, highlighting your research findings, insights, and innovations in the field of polymer science.
