Novel advances on the controlled synthesis of polymers continues to evolve at an accelerated pace, however, utlizing these advances to develop various applications remains a significant challenge. This conference will examine the advantages and limitations of a variety of polymerization applications and processes, such as living radical polymerization, radical polymerization, coatings and nanopolymers.

Join our international panel of experts to hear the latest research in this exciting field within materials science, including such areas as:

Polymer Synthesis
Visualization of Individual Molecules * Cationic Polymerization * Diphenylethene, the Way to Controlled Radical Polymerization * Transition Metal Complexes * Grafting Polymer Chains from Inorganic Surfaces

Living Radical Polymerization
LRP on Solid Surfaces * Effect Polymers from Copper * Control in ATRP of methyl methacrylate * Correlating Molecular Structure with Propertied by ATRP * ATRP and Packed-Column Technology * RAFT Process * Polyolefin Elastomers

Films and Coatings
Polymeric Thin Films via HFCVD * Deposition of Fluorinated Films from Radio Frequency Glow Discharges * Exploiting Acrylic Polymer Architectures * Novel PVDF coatings

Nanostructured Materials for Drug Delivery * Biomaterial Design * Nanostructures using Well-Defined Macromolecules * Predicting Mesophases of Copolymer/Nanoparticle Composites
