Special Issue "Green Synthesis Processes of Polymers"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2020.
Interests: green polymer chemistry; monomers from renewable resources; macromolecular engineering
Interests: sustainable polymers from renewable sources; polymer nanocomposites and nanomaterials; thermoplastic elastomers and polymer blends; polymer modification; rubber technology; failure and degradation of rubbers; adhesion and adhesives; waste rubber recycling
In recent decades, as a result of chemophobia and rising prices in oil, there has been an increase in the application of naturally occurring materials from renewable instead of fossil resources. This trend has been even more significant in the field of synthetic macromolecular chemistry since polymers are large scale, widely used products, and even small changes in the synthesis procedures may have globally noticeable effects. This Special Issue will focus on the green synthesis possibilities in polymer chemistry, including environmentally favorable initiation/catalysis, the use of monomers/polymers from renewable resources, and low energy consumption reactions. These new conditions deliver more sustainable polymer chemistry, which is essential for future sustainability, but also increases the level of trust in this field. The issue will also compare green polymers with the known commercial ones and try to forecast some application possibilities for them.

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. Processes 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 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Please note that for papers submitted after 30 June 2020 an APC of 1500 CHF applies. 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.
