As the energy structure of the world transitions from fossil fuels to renewable energy, new energy and its devices (e.g., lithium-ion cells, hydrogen energy, and supercapacitors) are playing a significant role in human production and living. Polymers are being widely used in new batteries, acting as the critical components of separator, electrolyte, aluminum-plastic film, proton conductor, etc. Therefore, the performance of polymers has an extremely significant impact on the performance of new batteries. Polymer research is crucial to the development of high-performance batteries. To achieve more competitive performances, new polymer materials with more advanced features are continuously being researched and proposed. It is hoped that the new proposed polymers could achieve ‘high-performance batteries’ with both competitive electrochemical and safety performances, meet the market requirements, and better serve the community.

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.
