Polymer nanocomposites are innovative polymer-based materials that use improved material preparation technologies to optimize the combination of material components with diverse properties. Polymer nanocomposites on the micro/nanoscale form a fairly complex phase structure due to the surface or interface interaction between different components, making polymer nanocomposites show a promising application value in many advanced applications, such as electromagnetic shielding, drives, biomedicine, energy storage, strain/stress sensor and electronic devices, and water purifying. The macroscopic characteristics of polymer nanocomposites are determined by the surface or interfacial properties of polymers and other components at micro/nanoscales. Therefore, revealing such surface or interface interactions at the molecular or atomic level gives a significant theoretical basis for improving polymer composite applications.
This Special Issue will present the latest findings from the widespread research community in the surface and interface of polymer nanocomposites to promote a better understanding and improved design of microstructure regulation required for achieving macro-performance in a variety of cutting-edge applications.

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.
