Current developments in new polymerization methods and analytical tools have simultaneously created new opportunities for the designing and tailoring of supramolecular polymers and other systems. Based on various non-covalent interactions, these systems can provide not only the selected composition given by a covalent structure, but also are responsive to various stimuli, adaptable, self-healing and, of course, have the desired architecture. This feature is important in biological, biomedical or pharmaceutical applications because life is based on supramolecular organisation. Other possible applications can be found in electronics and optoelectronics, as well as in cosmetics or sensors.
This Special Issue focuses on the synthesis, application and analysis of supramolecular polymers and related systems. Original research papers as well as review articles are welcome to be submitted to this Special Issue.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
