Conference Announcement

- IUPAC-sponsored event -

Polymers and Organic Chemistry 2002, 14-18 July 2002, San Diego, California, USA

> Back to Calendar

The aim of this meeting is to bridge the gap between organic and polymer chemistry. Speakers and participants will be drawn worldwide from both the organic and the polymer communities. Topical sessions of the conference will focus on the impact of polymers in the following subject areas:

  • combinatorial chemistry (2 sessions)
  • reagents and catalysts
  • organic synthesis
  • separations
  • nanotechnology
  • biotechnology

No other international or U.S. meeting for many years has brought together polymer chemists and the organic chemists working on combinatorial methods and polymer-supported reagents and catalysts. The two groups have much to learn from each other. New synthesis techniques developed by organic chemists can be applied by polymer chemists toward modifying the properties of the materials they prepare. In addition, new polymers prepared by polymer chemists can be used by organic chemists to improve the yield and selectivity of combinatorial syntheses.

Approximately 150-200 scientific participants from around the world are expected to attend this meeting.
