The Polymer Chemistry section publishes significant findings across all aspects of macromolecular science. Articles should showcase strong elements of innovation in terms of macromolecular design, synthesis or advanced characterization. Recognizing the ever-increasing role of computational approaches, partly or fully theoretical contributions on the mathematical modeling of polymer behavior are also encouraged. Areas covered by the section, include but are not limited to:
· Novel synthetic routes and chemical modification
· Polymerization mechanisms and kinetics
· Thermodynamics and mass transport properties
· Supramolecular polymerization
· Higher-order polymer structures
· Macromolecular structure and function
· Polymer hybrids and nanocomposites
· Advanced characterization techniques
· Advanced theoretical and computational methods
Particular consideration will be given to the technological application of polymers in areas such as medicine, energy, separation technology and opto- and microelectronics.

PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Polymer Chemistry welcomes submissions of the following article types: Book Review, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Polymer Chemistry, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Polymer Chemistry will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Chemistry.
