We are delighted to announce a high-profile themed issue on Supramolecular and Dynamic Covalent Polymers to be published in 2012. The Guest Editors of the issue are Professor Neil Ayres (University of Cincinnati, USA) and Professor Marcus Weck (New York University, USA) and it is our pleasure to invite you to submit to this themed issue.
The themed issue will focus on supramolecular and dynamic covalent polymers, encompassing all aspects of the synthesis, characterization, and applications of these macromolecular systems. Our objectives are not only to highlight current advances within this burgeoning field, but also to demonstrate how supramolecular and dynamic covalent polymers are being positioned at the intersection of diverse scientific arenas and stimulate different subsections of chemistry including synthetic organic chemistry, physical chemistry, and materials science. We encourage our authors to promote how their novel chemistries can aid in areas ranging from understanding fundamental molecular properties to the creation of new soft materials and stimuli responsive assemblies. It is our goal to bring together the preeminent scientists in this area to illuminate the leading edge of supramolecular and dynamic covalent polymer research and to demonstrate the potential for rapid future expansion into credible functional applications.
The deadline for the receipt of manuscripts for this themed issue is: 2nd May 2012
Submissions, either communications or full papers, should be high-quality manuscripts of original, unpublished research, containing important new insight. All submissions will be subject to rigorous peer review to meet the usual high standards of Polymer Chemistry.
Manuscripts can be submitted using our online submission service. Please indicate on you submission letter that your manuscript is submitted in response to the call for papers for the Themed Issue on Supramolecular and Dynamic Covalent Polymers.
