Report from IUPAC-Sponsored Symposium

9th International Conference on Polymer-Based Technology (POC’2000)
21-26 May 2000, Tianjin, China

> Back to Calendar

This conference has a long and distinguished history, with its original focus on reactions of polymer-supported catalysts. It now covers a wide range of topics in high-tech applications of polymers. The Tianjin meeting followed the fine tradition of preceding ones. There were about 150 participants from about 15 countries; half of the participants were from the host country. The standard of plenary and contributed papers (including some excellent presentations from young Chinese scientists) was exemplary. POC'2000 is the first in the series of these meetings to be sponsored by IUPAC, and, we hope, not the last. It represents one of many instances where Chinese scientists support the goals of the Union for the promotion of international chemical science and technology.
