volume contains key papers presented at the International
Symposium on Ionic Polymerization, held in Boston,
Massachusetts on June 30 - July 4, 2003 under the auspices
of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry
(IUPAC). This meeting, held at the Tremont Hotel, featured
a series of invited and contributed papers and posters,
covering the areas of anionic, cationic, and related polymerization
processes. The papers dealt with these polymerization
systems in the broadest sense, with contributions ranging
from new syntheses -- to mechanistic studies -- to applications.
The meeting brought together most of the leading experts
in this field, from academia and industry, as well as
a significant number of younger scientists and students.
meeting would not have been possible without the hard
work of the chairmen and principal organizers, Professors
Rudolf Faust and Roderick P. Quirk. We would like to thank
them for organizing an exceptional conference in the very
pleasant surroundings of Boston in the middle of summer.
They were aided in this task by the Organizing Committee:
Drs. J. Crivello, T. Long, J. Mays, J. Puskas, T. Shaffer,
and R. Storey. This meeting could also not have taken
place without the generous support of various sponsors:
IUPAC; American Chemical Society - Polymer Division; The
University of Akron; University of Massachusetts, Lowell;
National Science Foundation DMR; American Chemical Society
- Petroleum Research Fund; Asahi Kasei Corp.; BASF; Bayer
Corp.; Boston Scientific Corp.; Bridgestone/Firestone;
Chemetall Foote Corp.; Chevron Phillips Chem. Co.; General
Electric; Kaneka Corp.; Korea Kumho Petrochemical Co.,
Ltd.; Kraton Polymers; Sartomer; Synthomer; John Wiley
& Sons, Inc.; Wyatt Technology Corp. We are indebted
to these organizations for their support.
