Polymer Journal April special issue features 28-specially solicited papers covering various studies on the structure, physical properties and function of polymers at interfaces. With the 6 review papers selected from the special issue, this web focus is to showcase recent, important progress in this fast-advancing field in polymer science.
The February 2015 special issue of Polymer Journalon Fusion Materials: Creative Development of Materials and Exploration of their function through Molecular Control is a collection of papers contributed by the members of the research project of same title, focusing on the innovative researches in construction of high-functional structural materials. The accompanying web focus offers access to relevant articles selected from across Nature Publishing Group to provide further insights to readers of the special issue.
Focus Reviews are shorter review articles focused on the topics of author's own research interest and activities. With this narrowed scope and mini-review style format, it is mainly aimed at younger researchers to introduce essence of their researches and outcomes alongside the development of relevant study field, and to give readers useful, concise summary of the topics. In this collection we introduce 12 selected Focus Review articles on different research topics such as polymer/CaCO3 hybrid material, polymer-based gelators, recombinant elastomeric protein biopolymers, or Polyplex Micelles.
The August special issue of Polymer Journal, Biorelated Polymers and Materials, presents a variety of important reviews and original articles that examine and investigate biological and biomedical polymers for materials science and engineering.
