Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
The Special Issue will focus on the interaction between polymers and other compounds, surface modification and/or functionalization of polymers, processing parameters, and application of functional polymers, including polymers, polymeric blends, composites, and hybrids. The effective approaches for the characterization of polymeric materials are very important to investigate their interaction and surface properties. Appropriate surface modification may help enhance the performance of polymers. The use of suitable processing approaches and the optimization of processing parameters may help manipulate the nanostructures, mesostructures, textures, and performance of polymeric nanomaterials, films, membranes, parts, and devices. The surface, chemical, physical, electrical, mechanical, optical, and thermal properties of the functional polymers can be tuned to facilitate their application in various fields. This Special Issue will cover review and research papers on the interaction, surface, and processing of functional polymers for the environmental/energy/biomedical applications.

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.
