Special Issue "Recent Advancement in Polymerization Kinetics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 October 2023) | Viewed by 1776
Interests: transport processes in polymeric materials; characterization of polymer structures; composite materials for membranes; ionic polymer systems
Nowadays, different polymerization techniques are applied to obtain polymers with unique properties suitable for various applications ranging from high-performance engineering plastics, packaging, energy storage materials, and biomedical applications. Polymers are synthesized by precision methodologies to improve and control their properties such as controlled/living radical polymerization, polycondensation, ring-opening polymerization or superacid catalyzed polyhydroxyalkylation, amongst others. However, their polymerization kinetic behavior can be carried out under a wide range of conditions. Thus, it is important to understand how reactions proceed over time. This information can help us to designing and being able to predict material structure and morphology and obtain new materials with tailored characteristics.
The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight the current advances in novel and controlled polymerizations with a strong focus on the associated kinetics and reaction mechanism.

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.
