Special Issue on Analysis of properties of nanosized (< 100 nm) phases in polymeric materials – nanoprobing and its impact on macroscopic properties
Analysis of properties on the nanometric scale and to reveal macroscopic properties based on structure and phase-properties and vice versa have been important research topics which have developed parallel with the growth of nano-materials (nanoparticles, nanocomposites).

Special issue information:
Analysis of properties on the nanometric scale and to reveal macroscopic properties based on structure and phase-properties and vice versa have been important research topics which have developed parallel with the growth of nano-materials (nanoparticles, nanocomposites). Some polymers show naturally phases which are in the nanometric scale region; semi-crystalline polymers are one such prominent group of materials. Other classes are certain copolymers and spatially confined polymer structures. This special issue of Polymer Testing presents feature articles written by a group of leading experts on this progressing hot topic.
Manuscript submission information:
We are pleased to inform you that this Special Issue will waive 100% APC (Article Publishing Charge). This will be applicable for any submissions received before submission deadline, which are accepted for publication after peer review.
The journal’s submission platform (Editorial Manager®) is now available for receiving submissions to this Special Issue. Please refer to the Guide for Authors to prepare your manuscript, and select the article type of "VSI: Nanoprobing in polymeric materials" when submitting your manuscript online. Both the Guide for Authors and the submission portal could be found on the Journal Homepage here: https://www.journals.elsevier.com/polymer-testing
All the submissions deemed suitable to be sent for peer review will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. Upon its editorial acceptance, your article will go into production immediately. It will be published in the latest regular issue, while be presented on the specific Special Issue webpage simultaneously. In regular issues, Special Issue articles will be clearly marked and branded.
Submission Deadline: Jan 31, 2023
