Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to submit research articles and reviews to a Special Issue of Polymers. For this Special Issue, we aim to present the most recent developments in the design, characterization, and application of molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs). The different methods of MIP production, the characterization of dominant features of their surfaces, and the characterization of interactions between the polymer and the target molecule are within the scope of this Special Issue. Additionally, various types of additives (gold, silver, or platinum nanoparticles; multiwalled carbon nanotubes; MXenes; quantum dots; etc.) are used in the design of MIPs. Therefore, characterizing the impact of these additives on the interaction of the MIP with the target molecule is encouraged. Subsequently, extracting the imprinted molecule from the polymer after polymerization is critical to the final performance of an MIP. Finally, various applications of MIPs in electrochemical sensors, wearable sensors, and many other fields also are within the scope of this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
