Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since their discovery and development, polymers, ranging from domestic and engineering polymers to high-performance polymers, have been used in all industrial sectors. Polymers have a broad range of applications in the automotive, aeronautics, and microelectronics industries and have recently attracted the interest of the biomedical industry.

For this Special Issue, we have selected a series of articles by authors who are recognized for their research in various high-tech fields and who have developed new materials. A large part of this Special Issue will be devoted to supramolecular chemistry and its biomedical applications.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 papers will be 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. Molecules 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 2300 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.
