Polymer Chemistry will publish a themed issue on New Methods of Polymer Synthesis in 2012. Please e-mail the editorial office, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you would like to contribute an article.
The Guest Editors of the issue are Professors Christopher Barner-Kowollik (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany), Jean-François Lutz (Institut Charles Sadron, France) and Sebastien Perrier (University of Sydney, Australia).
The special issue will focus on the latest methodological developments in polymer synthesis, spanning the entire range of synthetic approaches ranging from ionic to coordination to living radical processes. We wish to highlight not only the latest advances within these individual fields, but also demonstrate how they can interconnect and be combined with other emerging synthetic technologies such as orthogonal modular ligation and small molecule organic chemistry. In addition, we wish to encourage our authors to highlight how their novel chemistries can aid in the construction of advanced material concepts. It is the aim to bring together the leading researchers in the field in a cross-methodology state-of-the-art framework of cutting-edge polymer synthesis.
All manuscripts will be handled by the Polymer Chemistry Associate Editors and Editorial office and refereed in accordance to the standard procedures of the journal, and in this respect invited articles will be treated in the same way as regular submissions to the journal.
The deadline for the receipt of manuscripts for this themed issue is 30th September 2011
Manuscripts can be submitted using the RSC’s on-line submissions service. Please clearly mark that the manuscript is submitted for the themed issue on New Methods of Polymer Synthesis. Please would you inform the editorial office by e-mail at email@example.com as soon as possible if you plan to submit to the issue and whether your contribution will be original research or a review-type article.
