Special Issue "Aromatic Polymers"
A special issue of Polymers (ISSN 2073-4360).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018)
Aromatic polymers, which wholly or partially include benzene rings and/or pseudoaromatic heterocycles, have been used in a wide field of high-performance or functional materials for a long time. This Special Issue is motivated by the observed increasing interest of various researchers in this field, including new synthetic methods of aromatic monomers and their polymerization, polymer architecture design from backbones to 2D/3D architectures, structure–property relationships, functionalization for new materials, chemistry of derivation and modification, composites with organic/inorganics, and applications as high-performance materials. In fact, topics are not limited to these works, and include all research areas concerning aromatic polymers.
Considering your prominent contributions to this interesting research topic, I would like to cordially invite you to submit an article to this Special Issue. This Special Issue will publish full research papers, communications, and review articles. I would like to bring together a collection of comprehensive reviews from leading experts and up-to-date research from notable groups in the community.
The manuscript should be submitted online before 31 October 2018. I would very much appreciate if you would consider being one of our authors.Prof. Dr. Tatsuo Kaneko
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 1500 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.
