This Special Issue on Functional polymeric systems for advanced industrial applications is devoted to the dissemination of high-quality original research articles or comprehensive reviews on cutting-edge developments in this interdisciplinary field. Functional polymeric systems constitute of a diverse family of novel molecular architectures which include conjugated porous polymers, organic-inorganic hybrid oligomeric/polymeric materials, supramolecular polymers and self-assembled networks, as well as metal ligated polymers. Those polymeric systems with multi-dimensional morphologies and particular physiochemical properties, which includes external stimuli responsiveness, could be prepared by different synthetic strategies such as general polymerization, organic and supramolecular approaches, as well as diverse manufacturing procedures such as the sounded 3D/4D printing. Thus obtained polymeric systems have wide applications to a series of advanced industrial fields such as sensors, electronics, smart materials, storage and adsorption of significant molecules, novel energy solutions, as well as biomedicines.
Thus, an in-depth understanding of chemical, physical, instrumental characterization, manufacturing, and advanced industrial application of functional polymeric systems/materials is highly relevant to the performance and development of any functional polymeric systems/materials. Both original contributions and comprehensive reviews are welcome.
With a focus on functional polymeric systems/materials in advanced industrial applications, potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Synthesis of polymeric materials;
- Instrumental characterization of polymeric materials;
- Physical/chemical properties of polymeric materials;
- Theory and simulation of polymeric materials;
- Advanced manufacturing of polymeric materials;
- Processing and performance of polymeric materials;
- Advanced industrial applications of functional polymeric systems.
