Special Issue "Conjugated Oligomers and Polymer Nanomaterials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2020.
Interests: polymer materials; nanostructure; energy applications
Since the first discovery and development of conductive polymers in the 20th century, conjugated oligomers and polymers with electronically delocalized backbones have been widely used not only for optoelectronic and photovoltaic devices, but also for a variety of recent applications that includes biomedical, energetic and catalytic materials and devices. This Special Issue is highly motivated by the enlarged scope of utilization of conjugated oligomers and polymers, and will pay significant attention to new synthetic technologies, supramolecular assemblies from the nano- to micrometer-scale, new routes for functionalization and modification, structure–property relationships, and biomedical and energy applications. Of course, this Special Issue should also include recent developments in optoelectronic and photovoltaic devices, covering all research fields based on conjugated oligomers and polymers.
Considering your prominent contributions to this field, 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 can be submitted now or up until the deadline, and will be published on an ongoing basis. I would greatly appreciate if you would consider being one of our authors.
Prof. Dr. Juhyun Park
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.
