Today’s intense search for adhesives of superior performance and lower cost, but based on novel approaches, is evident in both the fields of synthetic polymeric adhesives, as well as for adhesives from renewable polymeric materials. This Topical Collection is aimed at collecting cutting-edge original research papers and reviews on the main areas where novel approaches, conceptual or applied, are taken to the fundamental chemistry, mechanisms, applications and technologies of polyurethanes, epoxies, acrylics and many other synthetic adhesives be it oil-derived, coal-derived, inorganic binders or moreover biosourced polymeric adhesives from renewable materials. Mixed synthetic/biosourced adhesives are also aimed at as a particularly lively field of interest. The Collection is aimed at collecting cutting-edge research on all adhesive types under development throughout the vast variety of adhesives in use today, from acrylics to epoxies, to polyurethanes and isocyanates, phenolics and aminoplastics and many others.
Both original contributions and reviews are welcome. The first-round deadline for submitting papers is 30 October 2017.

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 collection 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 1400 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.
