We are welcoming submissions to the second issue of “Renewable Polymeric Adhesives”. Due to the great interest in the first issue and the considerable number of citations of the ensemble of papers that were published within, the Editorial Board decided to reopen this Special Issue to focus on technologies currently emerging in the field of adhesives and binders.
Renewable polymeric adhesives is an area for which interest is growing for all areas of polymer chemistry and polymer applications, and an area of primary development area for “green” chemistry. Adhesives in this area are inevitably coming of age, and coming rather rapidly. Thus, proteins such as soy proteins, albumin, and gluten; as well as their combinations with carbohydrates such as in soy flour; natural polyphenolics such as a variety of tannins and lignins; carbohydrates such as chitosans, glucose, sucrose, sorbitol, and others; as well as all sorts of sustainable, renewable materials such as citric acid, isorsobide, cashewnut liquid, and others are starting to find their place as total binders or even as partial support for synthetic polymers in many areas of adhesion: from wood and natural fibres to steel, aluminium, and other metals, plastics, glass fibres, foundry sands, and many others.
This Special Issue is aimed at collecting cutting-edge original research papers and reviews on the main areas where biosourced polymeric adhesives from renewable materials are under development and under particular focus, and throughout the vast variety of adhesives in use today, from acrylics to epoxies, polyurethanes, and all others.

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.
