Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Advanced high-performance polymer nanocomposites are receiving tremendous attention for their breadth of applications, as large strides have been made in design, processing, synthesis, characterization, and high-end user applications. Many applications require polymer nanocomposites to be lighter, stronger, and more durable with tunable properties. Great progress has been made in the design and synthesis of smarter and versatile nanocomposites to promote human welfare. High-performance polymer nanocomposites reinforced by fibers and other fillers have been successful in aerospace and automotive applications owing to their superior strength. Nonetheless, further strides are needed to develop nanocomposites for self-healing, biocompatible, and high-energy storage applications. The intention of this Special Issue is to collect recent articles in the field of fiber-reinforced polymer nanocomposites and their applications. This Special Issue will cover topics such as functional polymer nanocomposites, carbon nanotubes and nanofibers, graphene, polymer–fiber interphase, degradation and stability, smart and self-healing polymer nanocomposites, shape–memory polymers, and their MD simulations.

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.
