Journal Impact factor: 0.3*
Polymer science has established as a leading important interdisciplinary scientific stream emerging from Chemistry. Polymer science involves every aspect of understanding associated with natural or synthetic macromolecules. This vital branch of science encompasses chemistry, physics, mathematics, biochemistry, thermo dynamics, energetics and multi-faceted engineering applications as integration with the core subject. Innumerable applications of synthetic or bio-polymers are available in daily life and in industry. Continuously growing necessity for novel polymeric materials and its novel applications raised the need for a common communication podium for the researchers, academicians and students involved in polymer research. Polymer Sciences provides such unique opportunity to the academic community to publish their novel and outstanding research outcome in this very subject. Articles are accepted in the form of a research article, review article, short communication etc.
Aims & Scope: This periodical aims to aid the research community in the polymer science with updated information related to the various aspects of polymer science. Articles which are cross disciplinary in nature are most welcome for publishing in this journal. Considering the vast interdisciplinary readers, it is anticipated that communication by the authors should be understandable by the readers pertaining to other associated discipline.
Subjects considered for this journal contains bio-organic or inorganic polymer chemistry, macromolecular investigations, research on organometallic compounds, studies on mechanistic and energetics relevant to the polymers, supramolecular chemistry, assembly and reactions, theoretical studies on polymer including multiscale modeling and other simulation analysis, Electrochemistry and optical activity of polymers, crystallization of polymeric or oligomeric compounds, physics associated with macromolecules etc. Submissions not mentioned in this section but associated and relevant with polymer science are also welcome.

Macromolecular science ; science which deals with the thousands amount contained big atoms and their chemical structure is called as Macro molecular Science
Synthetic polymers – polymers which are man made are called synthetic polymers
Natural polymers – polymers which are occurred from natural sources are called as Natural polymers.
Bio refinery – Bio refinery deals with fuels, heat, power, and bio mass chemicals etc…,
Forest Chemistry – Forest chemistry deals with natural products which are available from forest resources.
Polymers nanotechnology – polymers which are manufactured by mainly wet synthetic materials, There the different types of polymers are together to form nanoparticles.
Stabilizers – The materials which are having the capacity of keep stable the respective necessary agents are called stabilizers.
Plasticizers – combination of plastics with any other materials for the purpose of softening are called as plasticizers.
Drug delivery systems – It refers to approaches, formulations, technologies, and systems for transporting a pharmaceutical compound in the body as needed to safely achieve its desired therapeutic.
Flame retardants– Flame retardants are the compounds which are used to prevention of spreading fire.
Friction – It is the force resisting the relative motion of solid surfaces, fluid layers, and material elements sliding against each other. There are several types of friction: Dry friction resists relative lateral motion of two solid surfaces in contact.
oil and gas – In oils saturated and un saturated compounds are deals with polymer sciences as well as different type of chemical gasses like methane ,ethane etc…, type of gasses also deals with polymeric sciences.
Polyesters - Polyesters are the compounds which are having main ester functional group in them.
Surfactants – compounds which are acts as to reduce the surface tension are called as surfactants.
Thermoplastics - It is defined as a plastic material, polymer, that becomes pliable or mouldable above a specific temperature and solidifies upon cooling.
Ionic Liquids - An ionic liquid is a salt in which the ions are poorly coordinated, which results in these solvents being liquid below 100°C, or even at room temperature (room temperature ionic liquids.
Elastomers – They are amorphous polymers existing above their glass transition temperature, so that considerable segmental motion is possible. At ambient temperatures, rubbers are thus relatively soft (E~3MPa) and deformable. Their primary uses are for seals, adhesives and moulded flexible parts.
Biodegradable polymers - Biodegradable polymers are the polymers which are easily degrade in the environment [or] Biodegradable polymers are also called as eco-friendly polymers.
Cyclodextrins are produced from starch by means of enzymatic conversion. They are used in food, pharmaceutical drug delivery, and chemical industries, as well as agriculture and environmental engineering.
Cellulose - Cellulose is an organic compound with the formula (C6H10O5)n,a polysaccharide consisting of a linear chain of several hundred to many thousands of β(1→4) linked D-glucose units.Cellulose is an important structural component of the primary cell wall ofgreen plants, many forms of algae and the oomycetes.
