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.
