Polymers constitute an ubiquitous type of materials and play a leading role in various areas of application, e.g. biomedicine, consumer products, organic electronics or high-performance materials. With the current global issues of health crisis, environmental pollution or depletion of fossil fuels in mind, polymer chemistry is one of the major drivers to deliver solutions for a sustainable development. While polymers feature a broad range of applications at present, research for fundamental developments in polymer chemistry has to be addressed as well. As such, research and understanding of basic principles or novel technologies will foster future developments in polymer science and its application in order to tackle the challenges ahead. The present thematic issue will highlight fundamental studies as well as the latest targets for applied research with a focus on the mentioned challenges.
