Special Issue "Carbon Materials Modified Polymeric Composites"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2020.
Interests: graftcopolymer; biopolymer membrane; polymer nanocomposites; polymer blends; food packaging materials
Carbon-based nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, activated carbon, and graphite have been used as energy materials because of their exclusive properties. These materials can be used in drug delivery, electronics, composite materials, sensors, field emission devices, energy storage and conversion thanks to their outstanding chemical, mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties. The combination of carbon-based nanomaterials and polymers is very important for engineering applications because of the good thermo-mechanical properties of the composites. The properties of carbon–polymer composites are enhanced as a result of the interaction between the polymer matrix and the reinforcing nanofiller. These carbon–polymer composites have been used in lightweight crafts, energy storage devices, conductive glue, sensors, gas storage devices, and for defense purposes.
This Special Issue invites manuscripts reporting on the synthesis, characterization, physico-chemical properties, and applications of filler–polymer composites. Research articles, reviews, and communications are welcomed.

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 papers will be 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 monthly 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 1800 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.
