Design of Functional Nanostructured Polymer Materials: Synthesis, Characterization and Applications

About this Research Topic

Throughout the years, nanoscience has surpassed the status of a promising technology to become an undeniable tool for chemistry. Polymer science is no exception. The processing of polymers into stunning nanostructures has the potential to overcome shortcomings of many applications. Traditional polymer chemistry and nanoscience have made possible the development of nanostructures with high specific surfaces, chemical stability, and high interaction capacities. In combination with surface grafting, nanomaterials with tailored functionalities can be achieved.

The collection of recent developments and information embracing the different strategies benefiting from nanoscience approaches in polymer chemistry would help to make an up to date critical evaluation of the state-of-the-art in the field. Compiling novel developments regarding nanostructured polymer materials by assessing new synthetic methods, their in-depth characterization, and the plausibility of potential applications will allow readers from industry and academia to reach new ideas for future progress.

We welcome submissions of Original Research, Review, Mini-Review, and Perspective articles, in themes including, but not limited to:

 • Design and synthesis of novel nanostructured polymers and blends
 • Novel synthetic methods and technologies for the development of nanostructured polymers
 • Development of characterization methodology for nanostructured polymers
 • Combination of different techniques to develop nanostructured polymers with tailored functionality
 • Applications of novel nanostructured polymers in diverse fields


Keywords: nanocomposites, grafting, crosslinking, characterization techniques, nanoscience


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
