This Special Issue is dedicated to the 2nd Polymers conference “Polymers 2020: New Trends in Polymers Science: Health of the Planet, Health of the People”, organized in collaboration with the MDPI open-access journal Polymers. The conference will be held as a three-day event in Turin, Italy, 3–5 June 2020.
The broad themes that will be addressed during the conference include synthesis, modification, and characterization of synthetic and natural polymers, polymer hybrids, nanocomposites, polymer biomaterials, polymers in drug delivery and tissue engineering, bio-based and biodegradable polymers, polymer recycling and re-use, functional polymers, and polymers in energy, among others. Participants of the conference are cordially invited to contribute original research papers to this thematic issue. We welcome cutting-edge research in the field of polymer science.
Please note that all submissions are subject to a 20% discount on article processing charges (APCs).
