Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is motivated by the observed growing interest in the global net-zero carbon emission commitments by 2050. A variety of design, fabrication and applications of polymer-based devices have been developed according to intrinsic chemical and physical properties extending to their fascinating sustainable capabilities. As the external stimuli, including pH, light, heat, radiation, etc., are further applied to the polymer-based devices, they may have a corresponding reversibly or irreversibly change in the recovery process. Thus, the Special Issue will collect communications, feature articles, original research articles, reviews and perspective papers are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following, works with an emphasis on the global net-zero carbon emission with clean energy, pollutes detection, innovative fabrication processes, and novel concepts of functional hydrogel/polymer/composite. We are pleased and sincerely to invite researchers in this field to submit relevant manuscripts to this Special Issue of the journal Polymers.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
