Polymers

A polymer is a large molecule (macromolecule) composed of repeating structural units typically connected by covalent chemical bonds. While polymer in popular usage suggests plastic, the term actually refers to a large class of natural and synthetic materials with a variety of properties and purposes.
Journals
Polymer Reviews publishes topical issues, consisting of invited high quality reviews on topics of current interest in all areas of macromolecular science and engineering. Areas of particular interest are biomedical applications, organic electronics and photonics, nanostructures, micro- and nano-fabrication, biological molecules (DNA, proteins, carbohydrates), polymers for renewable energy and the environment, and polymers at the interfaces with other disciplines.
The recent and projected growth of the polymer industry throughout the world emphasizes the need for the presentation and understanding of reliable polymer property information which can help the designer, fabricator and consumer in optimizing the choice and use of polymers, particularly as engineering materials. The International Journal of Polymeric Materials meets this need. It also is a journal of record and provides a forum on new and old materials.
Advanced Manufacturing: Polymer & Composites Science (AMPCS) publishes refereed research articles addressing advanced and automated manufacturing challenges in structural polymer-based composites and multifunctional materials.
Progress in Polymer Science publishes state-of-the-art overview articles by internationally recognized authorities in polymer science and engineering, one of the fastest growing disciplines. The journal provides a link between original articles, innovations published in patents, and the up-to-date knowledge of technology.
Chemistry of Materials is devoted to the publication of original contributions on forefront, fundamental research at the interface of chemistry, chemical engineering, and materials science. Both theoretical and experimental studies which focus on the preparation or understanding of materials with unusual or useful properties are relevant.
