Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the rapid development of energy, electrical and electronic technologies, the rapid accumulation of heat in related equipment and components will inevitably result in a serious threat to their stabilities and reliabilities. Thermally conductive polymer nanocomposites offer new possibilities for replacing metal parts in several applications, including power electronics, electric motors and generators, heat exchangers, etc., thanks to the advantages of polymer such as light weight, corrosion resistance and ease of processing. Current interest in improving the thermal conductivity of polymers is focused on the selective addition of nanofillers with high thermal conductivity. High-performance thermal management materials for electronic devices are obtained by designing the structure of fillers in nanocomposites. The thermal conductivity of the composite material can be efficiently improved through the structural design of the thermal conductivity filler and the molecular structure design of the polymer substrate. Meanwhile, computational simulation (such as molecular dynamics simulation) is used to further analyze and verify the influence of structural design on the heat transfer mechanism. Synthesis, property characterization and application of materials should focus on biological or molecular research.

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.
