Call for papers – ‘Polymers’ Special Issue

BCMaterials researcher Dr. Carmen Rial has been selected, along with Prof. Dr. M. Mounir Bou-Ali from the University of Mondragon (Spain), as Guest Editor for the special issue of Polymers (ISSN 2073-4360) titled “Conductive and Magnetic Properties of Polymer Nanocomposites”.

One of the great technological challenges is the development of new smart and multifunctional materials, closely related to the evolution of concepts such as Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT). Numerous attempts have been made to develop polymer-based composites with outstanding electronic and magnetic properties. Thus, several aspects, which affect the effectiveness of these polymer-based composites, are mainly related to the possible combinations of functional fillers, integration into devices, and compatibility with several additive manufacturing techniques. Accordingly, there is a need to develop new composite materials that provide these capabilities and can enhance the physical properties and applications, as well as consider the potential impacts on production scale-up.

Manuscript submission information is available via the foregoing link to the special issue.


The deadline for manuscript submissions is 25 September 2024.

These are the keywords for the research or review articles:

- Polymer composites
- Magnetic polymers
- Conducting polymers
