Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Polymer rheology is the study of the rheological behavior of polymer materials under different situations. Mechanical rheology and logistical chemical rheology are both subsets of polymer rheology. Mechanical rheology is a mechanical approach for studying material deformation, strength, dissipation, and other phenomena, as well as the change in material structure caused by processing. Physicochemical rheology is a physicochemical approach for studying the impact of a substance's molecular structure and its interaction on its overall qualities, such as surface mechanical properties, viscosity, thermoplasticity, and other features.

Therefore, this Special Issue mainly focuses on the latest research results of polymer chemistry, polymer physics and physicochemistry, reaction engineering, structure and properties, molding and processing theory and technology, material application, and technology development related to polymer rheology. In addition, the Special Issue also focuses on the latest research achievements of polymer rheology and its related interdisciplinary, emerging, and marginal disciplines.

Coverage for this Special Issue includes:

(1) Rheological characteristics of diverse polymer materials: deformation, strength, and loss under physical force.
(2) Viscosity and thermoplasticity of polymer materials.
(3) Rheological properties of polymer composite systems: the effects of mixed materials and their structures on rheological properties.
(4) Rheological properties of polymer-mixed solutions: polymer solution, polymer gel, polymer liquid foam, et al.
(5) Applications relating to polymer rheological properties.

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.
