Continued increase in global production and consumption of polymeric and petrochemical materials in the last two decades has resulted in vast and widespread academic and industrial research activities, particularly in the field of polyolefins. To cover these advances in research and technology, in a comprehensive and systematic fashion, Iran Polymer and Petrochemical institute, IPPI, has started to launch “Polyolefins Journal”, a new international, open access, peer reviewed and multidisciplinary publication on biannual basis in English.

The “Polyolefins Journal” accepts original research and review/mini-review articles as well as reports on major technological breakthroughs in all areas of polyolefins for publication, including: 

 

  • Olefins synthesis, characterization and applications
  • Polymerization methods of olefins
  • Catalysts for polyolefin production
  • Kinetics and mechanism of polymerization
  • Characterization and processing
  • Modeling and simulation
  • Structure-property relationship
  • Polyolefins degradation
  • Other related subjects
