Polyolefin Characterization (ICPC) and Short
Course on Polyolefin Characterization Techniques will be held October 21-24, 2012 in
Houston, TX, U.S.A.
Being co-organized by Polymer Char, ICPC is intended for all researchers both academic and professionals, and has become the meeting point par excellence for worldwide scientists in the field. 4th ICPC Technical Program will consist of different sessions covering Separation and Fractionation, Molecular Structure and Properties, Morphology, Thermal
Analysis, Rheology and Spectroscopy.
The ICPC Conference was born in 2006 to satisfy the need for an international conference specifically focused on polyolefin
characterization. Previous editions have been celebrated in Houston, TX, U.S.A. in 2006, in Valencia, Spain in 2008 and in Shanghai, China in 2010. With attendees coming from over 20 countries and from the leading polyolefin players, ICPC Conference has clearly become the international meeting for polyolefin characterization experts.
As part of the Conference program, a Short Course on Polyolefin Characterization techniques is scheduled on October 21st at the same venue. This one-day intensive course is an ideal way to learn the main concepts about Polyolefin Microstructure, GPC Basics and Applications, Chemical Composition Distribution (CRYSTAF, TREF and CEF), Cross
Fractionation, High Temperature HPLC and Preparative Fractionation. Additionally, the conference will be accompanied by Posters Sessions, a Booth area and Vendor speeches.
Within its three past editions, the ICPC Conference has received the
support of many leading Polymer, Research and Instrumentation
companies, such as Agilent Technologies, Anton Paar, Borealis, The Dow
Chemical Company, the Dutch Polymer Institute (DPI), ExxonMobil
Chemical, LCÂ·GC Group, Lyondellbasell, Malvern Instruments, Polymer
Char, Polymer Standards Service (PSS), Postnova Analytics,
Progression, SCG Chemicals, Waters Corporation or Wyatt Technology.
There has been a special edition of Macromolecular Symposia published
by Wiley-VCH dedicated to each ICPC edition, edited by Prof. JoÃ£o
Soares of the University of Waterloo.
