Continued innovations in the polymer industry have made polymer surface modification methods a subject of intense research. These physical surface modification methods include flame, plasma discharge, microwaves, UV, gamma-ray, electron beam, ion beam, plasma, and laser treatments. This Special Issue of Materials titled “Advances in Polymer Surface Modification” is devoted to the principles of operation of aforementioned methods, their advantages and disadvantages, polymer surface characterization, experimental techniques developed for the characterization of polymer surfaces, physical chemistry of polymer surfaces, novel techniques for polymer surface modification, bio-mimetic and self-healing polymer interfaces, ecological aspects of polymer surface modification and related themes. Submission of research and review papers is encouraged.
Prof. Dr. Edward Bormashenko
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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
