Journal overview

Journal of Macromolecular Science, Part A: Pure and Applied Chemistry (JMS-PAC) is a necessary resource for academic and industrial scientists and engineers whose interests center on both synthetic and naturally occurring polymers and their applications. Published papers include experimental details on topics such as:

  • Synthesis, modification, and/or in-depth characterization of monomers and polymers
  • Polymerization kinetics
  • Morphologic properties of polymers
  • Spectroscopic properties of polymers
  • Optical properties of polymers
  • Electro-optical properties of polymers
  • Mechanically adaptive polymers
  • Smart polymers
  • Biopolymers
  • Adhesives & Coatings
  • Polymer Self-Assembly
  • Polymer Composites
  • Supramolecular polymers

JMS-PAC is unique in that it combines these topics with their applications in a wide variety of fields, such as: adhesives, coatings, barriers, membranes, drug delivery, and renewable energy, to mention a few.
