Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to the diversity and complexity of the application environment, especially in the seawater environment, metal materials are often corroded. The friction and wear cannot be avoided in the application process, causing safety risks and economic losses. Polymer-based superhydrophobic coatings and films are widely used in metal protection fields. We are pleased to invite you to contribute other unpublished papers to the journal Polymers. This Special Issue is aimed at Polymer-Based Superhydrophobic Coating and Films. In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Composites
  • Nanoparticles
  • Hydrophobicity
  • Catalyst supports
  • Coating
  • materials
  • Oxides.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
