4th International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization
22-26 October 2001, Crete, Greece
> Back to Calendar
Ionic polymerization (anionic and cationic) leads to polymeric materials
with well-defined structure, microstructure, molecular weight, composition,
and functionality. Recently developed polymerization techniques (such
as living radical, template, and enzymatic) are compatible with a wide
variety of monomers and less demanding than ionic polymerization. The
combination of ionic polymerization with such new techniques can lead
to materials with special properties.
This symposium will focus mainly on new developments in ionic polymerization,
although several sessions will be dedicated to other polymerization
techniques. Because in polymer science it is extremely important to
control properties by means of macromolecular architecture, one session
will be devoted to the physics of polymers resulting from the procedures
mentioned above. Approximately 250 scientific participants from around
the world are expected to attend this symposium.
