Recent Progress in Materials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of Materials. Its aim is to provide timely, authoritative introductions to current thinking, developments and research in carefully selected topics. Also, it aims to enhance the international exchange of scientific activities in materials science and technology.
Recent Progress in Materials publishes original high quality experimental and theoretical papers and reviews on basic and applied research in the field of materials science and engineering, with focus on synthesis, processing, constitution, and properties of all classes of materials. Particular emphasis is placed on microstructural design, phase relations, computational thermodynamics, and kinetics at the nano to macro scale. Contributions may also focus on progress in advanced characterization techniques.

About This Topic
Engineering polymers are a group of plastic materials that have improved mechanical and thermal properties that make them ideal for all types of engineering applications, replacing traditional materials equal or greater in weight, hardness or other properties, while being much simpler to manufacture, especially with complex shapes. These properties, in combination with the economics of thermoplastic processing has enabled engineering polymers to become substitutes for metals and alloys in a variety of applications and to be used as unique materials in electronics, thermal, medical and chemical exposure applications. The relevance of engineering polymers as substitute materials for metals and alloys rests in large part on their mechanical properties. These properties are critical to engineering applications.
In this special issue, we encourage the submission of articles related to engineering polymers and materials in its broadest sense. Original research reports, review articles, communications, and perspectives etc. are welcome in all areas pertinent to this topic. All accepted papers will be published totally free of charge.

Advancements in surface engineering and material fabrication techniques have enabled the creation and replication of naturally occurring surface topographies or the extrapolation of natural patterns to become achievable targets. Polymers are used extensively in the field of biomedical sciences for containment, handling, and as cell culture [...]

The present study deals with the development of scaffolds based on gelatin (G) and/or chitosan (CH) through modifications in the central processing method. This process consists of the fabrication of a hydrogel which is, then submitted to a freeze-drying stage. To compare the effects of the different modifications, the mechanical properties [...]
Evaluation of Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) for Passive Rear Projection Screen Application
Received: 24 June 2019; Published: 07 August 2019; doi: 10.21926/rpm.1903002
In the past few years, there have been many attempts to commercialize Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) for Rear Projection Screen (RPS) in electrically switchable films and glass products. This application is based on the exceptional image quality of PDLC at a wide viewing angle. However, due to the high price of conventional switchable [...]
