Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Polymer materials are found in almost every material used in daily life, and their importance has been highlighted because of their wide applications. With the rapid development of modern society, developing new and/or advanced polymer materials is constantly required. Therefore, the synthesis of advanced polymers has attracted considerable attention. This Special Issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences will focus on a collection of excellent research articles and review papers related to the synthesis of advanced polymer materials involving polymer synthesis, polymer chemistry, and polymer functionalization and modification. Every paper submitted for consideration is welcomed to report novel synthesis techniques, new synthesis methods and approaches (especially catalytic systems for polymer synthesis), new polymer materials originating from new monomers or comonomers, chemical modifications of polymers, etc.
Due to the success of the first edition of this Special Issue, we would like to add more results and new insights from recent research projects.

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.
