Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Polyureas are amazing polymers that have emerged as advanced materials in the last few years. Applications of polyurea-based materials range from nanomedicine to nanotechnology, and many efforts have been made to optimize their synthesis, especially using green methodologies, and fully explore their potential by the rational design of novel functional architectures.

This Special Issue is concerned both with molecular dynamic simulation studies and the synthesis and functionalization of polyureas that enable the development of novel nanomaterials, and will help to compile the current state-of-the-art and to highlight their range of applications, namely, in therapeutics, nanocatalysis, and regenerative medicine. Both original contributions and reviews are welcome.

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.
