Special Issue "Hybrid Polymeric Materials II"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 March 2022.
It is our pleasure to announce the edition of the Special Issue on “Hybrid Polymeric Materials II”. Combining synthetic organic polymers with inorganic materials, carbon nanostructures or nanoparticles at a molecular or a submicroscopic level gives rise to a unique class of materials namely the Hybrid Polymeric Materials. Multifaceted and with endless combinations, hybrid polymers take advantage of each component’s properties and special characteristics or even lead to new advantageous features otherwise not found in the constituting materials.
Hybrid polymeric materials represent a wide, rapidly growing research area targeting applications such as organic electronics, bioelectronics, energy conservation and production systems, diagnostics-imaging and sensing, to mention just a few.
This Special Issue, the second under this topic, aims to present recent trends and scientific results of modern polymer hybrids being devoted to the development up to the application of these fruitful materials. More specifically, functionalized polymers covalently attached to- or in close proximity and association using extended π-π stacking with- carbon nanostructures (such as fullerene, carbon nanotubes and graphene); polymeric metallocomplexes with transition metal ions, inorganic nanoparticles interconnected with polymeric entities, metal nanoparticles attached onto or associated to properly functionalized polymeric chain, etc are some of the subclasses of “Hybrid Polymeric Materials II” comprising this specially devoted issue.
We are looking forward to your valuable contribution in order to build together a successful issue that will give to the readers the state of the art activities and the future perspectives in the topic.

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 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 2200 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.
