Polymer adhesives are a fundamental specialty of modern life. Many products used today are bonded with adhesives and used in aeronautics, electronics, timber, medical and dental applications and many others. While adhesives in general have reached a high level of sophistication and effectiveness, this field of research is still constantly evolving. The progressively stricter environmental and government regulations on synthetics, as well as the realization that the oil from which many adhesives are derived has only a limited future supply, has led to research focused on adhesives derived from natural resources. The last decade has seen a considerable surge in research activity on adhesives from an endless variety of renewable resources, and this incredible growth is only intensifying. Some of these adhesives have already started to find their place in the industrial market, and their market share, although still relatively small, is constantly growing. This polymer science constitutes an essential aspect of the green and circular economy.
This Special Issue is focused on collated cutting-edge original research and review articles on the preparation and application of polymer adhesives from renewable resources.

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.
