Call for papers: Tailoring Dispersity and Shape of Molecular Weight Distributions


We are delighted to announce a call for papers for our latest themed collection on “Tailoring dispersity and shape of molecular weight distributions” Guest Edited by Athina Anastasaki (ETH Zurich) and Brett Fors (Cornell University).


This special issue will cover new synthetic or engineering methods to tailor polymer dispersity or the shape of molecular weight distributions. This includes discrete or nearly monodispersed materials and the properties thereof. Submissions where the effect of varying either the dispersity or the shape of molecular weight distributions are also encouraged and can be illustrated in any type of property of applications.


You can access the online collection here to look at the first few contributions to this collection.


Manuscripts should be submitted via the Royal Society of Chemistry’s online submission service available at Please add a “note to the editor” in the submission form when you submit your manuscript to say that this is a submission for the themed collection. The Editorial Office reserves the right to check suitability of submissions in relation to the scope of the collection.


All manuscripts will be subject to the journal’s usual peer review process. Accepted manuscripts will be added to the online collection as soon as they are online and they will be published in a regular issue of Polymer Chemistry.

If you have any questions about the journal or the collection, then please do contact the Editorial Office at
