Special Issue in International Journal of Molecular Sciences: Recent Research in Supramolecular Chemistry
Polymers are used in a wide range of products. The physical and chemical properties of polymeric materials can be explored using experimental and computational tools. The development of new synthetic recipes to prepare better materials is usually based on trial-and-error cycles, and thus the process is expensive (time- and material-intensive). The development process can be accelerated using computational tools, which starts with the understanding of the materials at the atomistic level. Therefore, calculations and experiments are complementary to each other.
The aim of this Special Issue of Polymers, entitled “Understanding Polymers from the Atomistic Level to Their Production”, is to cover the most recent results in the field of computational and experimental polymer science. Both research and review papers are welcome. This Special Issue will consider synthesis, theoretical characterization, and the latest developments in raw materials, equipment, manufacturing technologies, and other related topics.

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.
