Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Researchers around the world are diligently developing environmentally friendly technology, which can be used long-term and has a high-efficiency value. For instance, many investigations are currently trying to substitute metal with polymeric materials to improve efficiency, as polymer materials are convenient to use in the production process and have properties that can be compared to those of metal materials (plates). Additionally, their prices are relatively lower, and these polymer materials can be reprocessed via a composition neutralization process so that they return to their original structure and become a new material again. Polymer composite films also have enormous potential, with many research results showing their superiority in terms of, e.g., anti-UV and antibacterial properties and good heat resistance. In the future, this polymer composite film is expected to replace components with metal materials. To better understand the importance of this technology, the Special Issue “Polymer Composite Films” invites contributors to address other research results related to polymer material characterization, experimental in various applications, and simulation. Understanding the behavior of polymer nanocomposites, nanofluid with composite particles, biolubricants, polymers with biomedical applications, and many 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.
