Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Polymeric coatings on textile fabrics can be used to increase their functionality for a wide array of purposes. It is important to conduct molecular research to gain a better understanding of the basic mechanisms of polymeric coatings so as to further extend their applications.

This Special Issue seeks to collate papers that sheds light on the enhanced molecular materials which can be used in textile coatings, and focuses on novel theories of molecular research to cope with the emerging challenges.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Polymer coatings for smart and electronic textiles;
  • Medical textiles;
  • Protective textiles;
  • Sol–gel finishing;
  • Biomolecules for textile coatings;
  • Organic/inorganic hybrid coating materials;
  • Polymeric nanomaterial coatings;
  • New methods of textile coating and finishing.

Prof. Dr. Andrea Ehrmann
Guest Editor

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.
