It gives me immense pleasure to introduce a Special Issue of Polymers titled “Conducting Polymer Nanocomposites and Their Potential Applications II”. This Issue will deal with composite materials coupled with nano-technological aspects for the development of various sensor probes in potential applications based on conducting polymers. Polymer composite synthesis with various nanostructured materials has recently developed according to the need to improve the composites and materials in specific applications for the demands of industry and daily needs. The development of bio- and nano-technology has recently received a great deal of research attention. In the field of polymers, nanomaterial co-doped conducting polymers emerge as a challenging prospect due to their remarkable preparations, growth and characterization, processing and fabrications, developments and potential applications, such as polymerization; sensors; bio-degradation; bio-sensors; electrospinning; bio-plastics; nanofabrication; blends; bio-polymers; drug delivery; hydro-gels; fabrication; sol–gel synthesis; cross-linking; and bio-fuels. Depending on the potential application, the prepared conducting nanocomposite polymers may need to display bio-compatibility, mechanical strength, thermal or electric conductivity, good charge-carrier mobility, analyte specificity, or detection sensitivity. The relationships between the final properties of novel polymer nanocomposite materials and their origin, structure, and treatment are summarized by one fundamental question: “How can we bring these new composite polymer nanomaterials to practical applications at small or large scales?” Both theoretical and practical features of polymer materials for nano-sciences, physico-chemistry, nano-technology, and bio-medicine will be covered.
This Special Issue will be compiled targeting an audience with diverse educational and research backgrounds. It will also cover information from dynamic experts in the fields of polymers, hybrid materials, nanomaterials, and nanocomposite science and technology. All significant aspects dealing with the materials, chemistry, physics, biology, technology, health sciences, and engineering aspects of polymer nanocomposites and their extensive applications in chemistry and bio-technology are welcomed. Authors are invited to submit their novel ideas and recent developments in the form of original research papers and reviews on topics relating to "Conducting Polymer Composites and Their Potential Applications II" in this Special Issue of Polymers. It is my hope that this selective Special Issue will present innovative routes of preparation, improvements, and continuous changes in the multi-dimensional nano-bio-technological field of polymers. It will focus on the cutting-edge nano-sciences and bio-technology of nano-composite polymer materials as well as polymer nanomaterials. It is expected to guide developments in the preparation of novel nano-composite polymer materials with special properties, functions, and potential applications. It will open bright possibilities for solutions to the current environmental, biomedical, industrial, and ecological problems.
