Special Symposium

One field has emerged that offers both the ability to create an almost unlimited range of complex two and three dimensional nanostructured materials, and the potential for mass production of these materials. It is hardly surprising that polymer nanotechnology is one of the fastest growing areas of the Nanotech Conferences. Recent developments in polymer synthesis provide a wealth of copolymer structures — di-blocks, tri-blocks, linear chains and branches. Developments in theory and modeling predict the nanoscale structure that will result from the self-assembly of these materials. Developments in processing technology provide control as nanostructure formation is directed or “frozen in”. Developments in combinatorial methods for synthesis and processing help to explore the vast array of materials. Developments in characterization allow us to determine which structures have indeed been formed.

The 2011 Polymer Nanotechnology Symposium will provide an opportunity to share your contribution to this important field.

The session on Green and sustainable polymer materials is planned as a joint activity with the Cleantech2011 “Green Chemistry and Materials” symposium.
