The field of polymer science and engineering has evolved significantly over the last few decades. With advances in modern polymerization techniques and advanced characterization methods, access to a wide range of polymeric materials with unique properties for specific applications has become more realistic. For instance, controlled -radical polymerizations have allowed rapid access to well-defined polymers with varying architectures and compositions, which are essential characteristics for both fundamental and applied aspects. Although significant challenges still exist in the large-scale synthesis of, for instance, sequence controlled polymers and ultra-high molecular weight polymers with narrow polydispersities, significant progress on many levels has been achieved for the rapid exploitation of engineered polymers.
This Special Issue entitled “Polymers for Modern and Advanced Engineering Applications” will therefore cover the development and use of precisely engineered polymers for a wide range of advanced engineering applications. Engineered polymers for the topics listed below will be considered in this Special Issue but submissions are not limited to those applications only. Contributions from both original research studies and comprehensive reviews will be considered.

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.
