Special Issue "Polymer Blends 2017"
A special issue of Polymers (ISSN 2073-4360).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2017)
A polymer blend method combines two or more polymers together with the product usually having superior thermal and mechanical properties than its constituents. The polymer blend method using commercial existing polymers is generally believed to be the most effective way to develop new functional polymers with high flexibility and versatility, compared with the synthesis of a new functional polymer, based on the practical and economical viewpoints. The special issue of Polymers is dedicated to “polymer blends” and aims to describe the polymer miscibility, specific interactions, characterization methods, structure/property relationship, and applications of polymer blend such as optoelectronics, biomaterials, and electronic materials. The papers in this special issue should cover polymer science and related industrial research.

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. Polymers 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 1500 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.
