Frontiers in Polymers Science

Polymer science or macromolecular science is a subfield of materials science concerned with polymers, primarily synthetic polymers such as plastics and elastomers. The field of polymer science includes researchers in multiple disciplines including chemistry, physics, and engineering. A recently released report from Transparency Market Research (TMR) forecasts that the global medical polymers market will grow at a CAGR of 8.3% between 2014 and 2020. TMR, a market intelligence firm based in the U.S., states that the global medical polymers market will reach a value of US$17.13 billion by 2020, from US$9.80 billion in 2013.

Polymer science has enormous impact on contemporary materials science. The aim of Polymer science is to through light on the underlying support for the creation and characterization of polymeric materials and interpretation for structure/property relationships. Polymer science is of increasing importance for one's daily life since it covers a vast area which includes smart polymers which are most prevalent in drug-delivery system in biomedicine, naturally occurring polymers like Cellulose, starch, lignin, chitin, and various polysaccharides which are biodegradable, natural fiber reinforced composites which is the emerging area in polymer science. These natural fibers are cheap with low density and high specific properties. These are biodegradable and non-abrasive. The natural fiber composites offer specific properties comparable to those of conventional fiber composites. Engineering polymeric materials with exceptional mechanical properties such as stiffness, toughness, and low creep that make them valuable in the manufacture of structural products like gears, bearings, electronic devices, and auto parts.
