    Special Issue Description

    Dear Collegues,

    Polymer synthesis is a substantial area in polymer science and marks the starting point for all sorts of polymer materials that have a plethora of applications in everyday life but also in academic research. Consequently, polymer synthesis was recently decided to be one of the seven parts of Polymers. The most promising disciplines nowadays are those involving the synthesis of polymers, which have an almost limitless research potential.

    As a result, the Journal of Polymer and Composites has created a special issue where researchers can submit their research projects based on the hottest topics, where they will use the science of polymer synthesis and provide ground-breaking findings to the entire globe. A family of hybrid materials known as polymer nanocomposites comprises an organic polymer matrix with distributed inorganic nanofillers. Polymer nanocomposite has special qualities because it combines the benefits of organic polymers and inorganic nanofillers, such as flexibility, dielectric, ductility, and processability. Due to the inorganic nanofillers; enormous surface area, the interfacial area has significantly increased. Even in very low concentrations, these nanofillers can significantly alter the Polymer’s macroscopic characteristics. Nanotubes, metal oxides (such as SiO2, TiO2, Al2O3, Fe3O4), layered silicates (such as montmorillonite and saponite), metallic nanoparticles (such as Au, Cu), semiconductors (such as PBS, CdS), and mesoporous silicas are examples of inorganic nanofillers.

    The mesoporous silica nanofillers have drawn a lot of interest because of their well-ordered structure, large surface area, and ease with which the nanopores can be functionalized. When compared to those nonporous fillers, the nanopores are sufficiently porous to contain macromolecules, resulting in extremely intimate contacts between the polymer and the inorganic phase and some peculiar features.

    Manuscript Submission information

    Manuscripts should be submitted online by registering and logging in to this link. 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 on email address:[email protected] 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.
