Key attributes and benefits

Pigment & Resin Technology is a specialist journal with a broad coverage of science and technology relevant to colorants, polymers and colour applications. Emphasis is placed on applied research covering chemical and physical aspects of the synthesis, characterisation and application of colourants and polymers, as well as the development of inks and coating formulations. Content is therefore tailored to researchers in these fields, and research articles relating to strategically important research discoveries are particularly welcome. The journal is unique in its coverage of research in coloured systems, which encompass both colourants and polymers, rendering it essential to practitioners. All accepted articles undergo a double-blind peer review process to ensure a high quality of papers. For a full list of the journal's review board, please see below. 


Colourants and polymers, often present in conjunction, are essential components in most materials in both nature and society. R&D landscapes for colourants and polymers have evolved significantly over the last few decades, particularly due to the demands created by the emerging technologies in the fields of printed electronics, healthcare and space exploration, and by increasing awareness of the need to preserve natural resources and minimize pollution. Consequently, this journal covers all important and relevant areas relating to recent advancements, and thereby aims to keep researchers and practitioners up to date with the latest trends and developments.
