Editorial: Polymer Composite Analysis and Characterization

Editorial article from 'Polymers', 2023, vol. 15, issue 8. This Special Issue aimed to provide a forum for the discussion of recent advances in the analysis and characterization of polymer-based composites. Authors were encouraged to submit contributions dealing with composites based on oil-derived polymers and biopolymers, as well as natural or mineral fibers as reinforcement. Studies devoted to nanocomposites were also welcomed. The scope of this Special Issue is from basic research on the chemical structure of the composites and their interfaces to applied research on the mechanical and micromechanical properties of the materials. The issue also includes studies on the life cycle assessment or environmental impact of the composites, as well as the possible uses of such materials. In brief, the scientific papers published in this thematic issue on “Polymer Composite Analysis and Characterization” were devoted to the following aspects. ​
