Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ultra-stretchable polymers have been identified as promising materials due to their unique properties, such as high elasticity and mechanical durability. Some ultra-stretchable polymers also offer other advantages such as high electronic conductivity, high ionic conductivity, good thermal stability, good biocompatibility, and low cost. In this Special Issue, we welcome contributions that investigate the synthetic approaches, fundamental structure properties, and mechanical, electrical, optical, and thermal properties of ultra-stretchable polymers. We also welcome the exploration of the application of these materials in flexible electronics, flexible energy storage and energy conversion devices, and biocompatible medical devices. The format of the submission could be an original research article, review, mini review, or perspective.

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. Polymers 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 2700 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.
