Special Issue "Recent Advances in Flame Retardant Polymers"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 1059
Polymers have found wide-ranging applications in diverse areas of human life since their invention. However, the flammability of many polymers has hindered their use in emerging fields. To address this issue, the addition of additive or in situ reinforcing flame retardants, and the development of inherently flame-retardant polymers and coatings have been considered as effective strategies. This Special Issue aims to showcase the latest research and developments in the field of flame-retardant polymers, providing a platform for researchers and experts to share innovative methods, novel materials, and cutting-edge technologies for enhancing polymer flame retardancy. By tackling key challenges related to fire safety, these articles will advance flame-retardant polymer technology and its applications across industries.

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.
