Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is devoted to the papers of communications presented at the Eurofillers Polymer Blends 2019 Conference, Palermo, April 23–26, 2019. The main topics are as follows:

  • Polymer blends, copolymers, and hybrid systems
  • New (nano and micro) fillers, bio-based fillers, coupling agents, and surface treatments
  • Interfaces and interphases in multicomponent materials
  • Polymer composites and nanocomposites
  • Nanostructured polymer-based materials
  • Functional polymer-based materials
  • Bio-based polymers and biocomposites
  • Innovative non-reactive and reactive processing methods
  • Modern applications of polymer systems.

The Conference and this Special Issue intend to assess the state-of-the-art and the recent advances of all these multiphase polymer  systems.

It is my pleasure to invite all of the participants to the Eurofillers PolymerBlends 2019 Conference to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Papers from invited lectures, keynote lectures, oral communications, and posters are all welcome.

Please note that all submissions are subject to a 20% discount.

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.
