Reactive and Functional Polymers
The Journal publishes papers dealing with new ideas and developments in the science and technology of polymers with functional groups providing chemical or physical reactivity. The scope covers inorganic and organic functional polymers, both solid and liquid, acting as reagents, catalysts, carriers of protecting groups, templates, ion-exchangers, selective sorbents, chelating agents, supports for enzymes and cells, and the like. It also includes reactive crosslinkable prepolymers, degradable polymers, polymer resists, conducting polymers, and film-forming polymers. Contributions may deal with synthesis of such polymers or with their applications in organic synthesis, catalysis, water or effluent treatment, separations, recovery, lithography, microelectronics, information storage, energy conversion, diagnostics, coating and encapsulation, and adhesion.The Journal addresses two main audiences: those engaged in the synthesis of new materials and the development of novel techniques, and those concerned with technology and practical applications in the laboratory or plant. The Journal encourages, and serves as a forum for, the dialogue between these two groups.Papers on a broad spectrum of topics are encouraged. Emphasis is on work at the frontiers of science or technology and furthering the interaction between researcher and practical engineer, rather than on details of theory or application. Full-length papers, short communications, and review articles will be considered. All material submitted must be original, that is, may not have been submitted elsewhere for publication.
