Welcome to the Best of Macromolecular Journals, Edition 2016 !
Since 2008, we have compiled the most striking contributions published during the previous year across the Macromolecular Journals family into an exclusive issue. This online issue provides the highest possible exposure for the outstanding research presented within, while its print version is additionally distributed at all major conferences in the field of polymer science
Over the last twelve months over one thousand manuscripts have been published in the Macromolecular Journals. Ten of these have been selected to appear in the Best of Macromolecular Journals, Edition 2016.
We are pleased to present these articles, which include the presentation of a new family of bifunctional dendrimers, blood-compatible non-fouling polymer brushes, cytocompatible surface modifications obtained via thiol-ene click chemistry, and the reaction characteristics of miniemulsion polymerization.
We also proudly present a trend article on promising new approaches to synthesize sequence-controlled polymers, a feature article on the current strategies for designing pH-responsive materials, an application of 4D printing with hydrogel inks, and kinetic modelling of surface-initiated controlled radical polymerization.
Our covers for this edition showcase reviews, which discuss the emerging strategy of supramolecular assembly-assisted polymer synthesis, and the application of polymers for anti-human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) therapeutics.
