Interests: photoresponsive liquid crystals and polymers; liquid crystal and micro/nano composite materials; light-triggered photonics and advanced materials; block copolymers and self-organization; photomechanical and energy-transferring materials; hologram and data-storage; multi-responsive polymers; soft matter; organogels; photodriven orangic materials
It is our great pleasure to invite you to submit an article for a high-profile Special Issue on “Photoresponsive Polymers” to be published in Molecules. This Special Issue aims to highlight research on light-induced chemical and physical processes of polymeric and polymer-based composite materials in both the bulk films and solutions. This includes, but is not limited to, new experimental and theoretical methodologies in highly interdisciplinary areas, such as photochemistry, photophysics, photocontrolled material processing and applications. Reviews, research articles and perspectives from experts in the field are equally welcome.

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 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 monthly 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 1800 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.
