Interests: stimuli-responsive and functional polymeric materials; synthetic and reversible hydrogels; optically-labelled polymers; hybrid inorganic/organic soft materials
Hybrid polymeric materials, namely materials comprised of polymers and carbon nanostructures or inorganic constituents, represent a wide, rapidly growing research area targeting applications such as organic electronics, bioelectronics, diagnostics-imaging, and sensing, among others.
This Special Issue is dedicated to the synthesis, characterization and application of these emerging classes of materials and, more specifically, to functional polymers/carbon-based nanostructures such as fullerene, carbon nanotubes and graphene, polymer–metal or metal oxide nanoparticles, and finally polymeric metallocomplexes.

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.
