Advances in Polymer Science and Technology: An International Journal

Advances in Polymer Science and Technology: An International Journal aims at encouraging innovation, invention, imagination and creativity by providing a broad interdisciplinary platform for the presentation of new research and development concepts, theories and results which reflect the changing image and pace of modern polymer science and technology. Original full-length papers, notes/communications on research of unusual urgency and significance will be considered for publication in this journal. The submission of review articles of topical areas is also considered. The scope of the journal covers a wide range of the highly interdisciplinary field of polymer science and technology, including:

Polymers for Biosystems
  • Polymers for biosensors and affinity chromatography
  • Polymers for drug release and drug carrier systems
  • Biocompatible polymers and polymer surfaces
  • Bioabsorbable and biodegradable polymers
  • Microfabrication and novel processing
  • Polymers in biotechnology
  • Biologically engineered polymers
Advanced Structures
  • Liquid-crystalline and high-performance polymers and fibers
  • Polymeric gels networks, morphology, structure-property relationships
  • Blends and alloys
  • Engineering polymers
  • Composites, adhesives, interphases and interfaces
  • New elastomers, coatings and sealants
  • Flammability, flame retardance and flame resistance
  • Polymeric membranes, thin films and nanofilms
  • Polymeric catalysts.
Radiation-Related Polymers
  • Radiation-sensitive and radiation-stabilized polymers
  • Polymers for microwave absorption
  • Degradation
  • Photo-electro conductive polymers
  • Electro-optics and nonlinear optics
  • Dielectric, ferroelectric and electric applications of polymers
The journal will deal with organic, inorganic, multiphase and composite polymers which include amorphous and crystalline, in solid, liquid and gaseous phases with properties of potential for advanced technologies. Among the industries for which the journal is of importance are: electric, electronic, information and communication industries, aerospace-related industries, chemicals, energy, plastics, fibers and textiles, engineering resins and rubber products, automotive and packaging, imaging industries, devices and integrated circuits, specialty consumer products, agricultural and pharmaceutical industries.
