This Special Issue of Polymers is dedicated to the synthesis and functionalization of polymers for chemosensing. Recently, the development of conjugated and biomedical polymers has attracted increasing attention because of their use as highly sensitive fluorescent chemosensors for sensing various analytes and detecting metal ions and biological species in environmental applications by applying color or fluorescence intensities. The targets of fluorescent polymeric probes have extended from chemical species (e.g., ions and molecules) to physical parameters (e.g., temperature and pH). Fluorescent polymeric chemosensors are occasionally superior to small organic and inorganic fluorescent chemosensors in terms of sensitivity, robustness, and multiple functionalities. For instance, the chemical signals that are converted into electronic or optical signals when these polymers bind with an analyte can be transformed and enhanced effectively.
This Special Issue is a platform for all researchers to develop a novel fluorescent polymeric probe and to establish a new analytical method using a conventional fluorescent polymeric probe. This issue covers the synthesis, characterization, and chemosensory properties of polymers and hybrid organic-inorganic polymer composites. Contributions related to molecular design, synthesis, processing, and applications, together with those devoted to structure/property correlations of polymers and polymer composites, will be welcomed. The aim of this issue is to update recent knowledge and broaden our perspective on polymers in chemosensing for environmental and medical applications. We want to promote the previous Special Issue, Polymers for Chemosensing (https://www.mdpi.com/si/polymers/polymersforchemosensing). At the same time, we intend to continue collecting valuable papers encompassing this popular topic through this newly opened Special Issue to popularize the work among scholars.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2400 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.
