Special Issue Information
Converting waste polymers into high-value products used in industry has become a hot issue, which is significant for economic and environmental protection. The recycling and reuse of waste polymers involves physics, chemistry, engineering, etc.
At the same time, recycling and reprocessing costs should be considered, and pollutants should be avoided in the preparation process. Therefore, low-cost and green methods for the conversion of waste polymers need to be further developed, and more applications should be explored.
This Special Issue provides the channel to exchange and share novel ideas and recent research for the recycling of waste polymers.
Potential topics include but are not limited to:
- Recycling of waste polymers by new approaches;
- Discovery of new functional materials from waste polymers;
- Conversion of waste materials into advanced multifunctional materials;
- Design of novel materials by waste polymers;
- Assessment of present recycling of waste polymers.

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 2400 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.
