Special Issue Information
We would like to invite you to submit your paper about hybrid materials based on metal nanoparticles and polymers to this Special Issue of Polymers.
Hybrid materials based on metal nanoparticles and polymers have significantly contributed to the development of nanotechnology. Moreover, these hybrid materials can respond to stimuli (e.g., pH, temperature, light, magnetic field) or self-degrade in a controlled manner to release metal nanoparticles or encapsulated therapeutics. Functional and structural hybrid materials have remarkable properties and provide opportunities for creative fields and future advanced applications.
This Special Issue focuses on highlighting the progress of new hybrid materials based on metal nanoparticles and polymers—their design, preparation, functionalization, characterization and advanced applications.
We invite you to submit manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.
The focuses of this Special Issue include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Design of new hybrid materials based on polymers and metal nanoparticles.
- Development and preparation methods of hybrid materials based on polymers and metal nanoparticles.
- Properties of nanoparticles-reinforced polymers (mechanical, thermal, electrical, optical, chemical, magnetic, etc.).
- Structure–property relationships in hybrid materials based on polymers and metal nanoparticles.
- hybrid materials based on polymers and metal nanoparticles in plasmonics and photonics applications.
- Functional hybrid materials based on polymers and metal nanoparticles for energy conversion and storage.
- Low-dimensional hybrid materials based on polymers and metal nanoparticles in biotechnology.
Multi-functional smart hybrid materials based on polymers and metal nanoparticles.

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 2400 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.
