Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Studying the photopolymerization process is important from the point of view of applications. The result of this process influences a lot of different parameters: type of monomers, photoinitiators, and their concentration; type of light sources, and their intensity, and irradiation wavelength; and other possible additives, which could enhance the properties of the polymer, such as different nanoparticles and nanostructures. The selection and optimization of such parameters have led to the advancement of the application of the photopolymerization process. Additionally, all these parameters influence the parameters of polymer nanocomposite: degree of conversion, mechanical properties, and other properties, which are important from the point of view of applications.

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.
