Ingenious polymer structures, otherwise referred to as polymer films, self-assembles, gels, etc., are endowed with chemical sensing properties, presenting potential solutions to problems that are difficult to be solved by traditional chemical sensors in specific fields. This Special Issue is dedicated to collecting new ideas and applications on all aspects of sensor science of selective stimulus-responsive polymer materials. These include materials that enable an analyte stimulus response, particularly fluorescent polymer materials that respond to an analyte stimulus for applications in environmental detection, food analysis, biological detection, and imaging, demonstrating their relevance and superiority to small molecules and other responsive materials. Draft manuscripts may address conceptual advances in chemical sensing that are based on natural or synthetic polymers and applicable to many types of analytes or application papers which report on the use of an existing sensing concept in a new way or for a new analyte. In addition, scientific knowledge that will advance the development and application of commercially available polymer-based sensors is welcome.

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. Polymers 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 2700 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.
