Yerba Buena Ballroom 1 (Marriott San Francisco)
#361 - Structure and Properties of Polymers I: Polymer Blends (01A00)
This session will host oral presentations about any aspects of miscible or immiscible blends of homopolymers and/or block copolymers: thermodynamics, dynamics, physical properties, interfacial phenomena in immiscible blends, morphology, etc. Experimental, computational, or theoretical investigations are all welcome. Talks that emphasize the interrelationship between the structure and properties will be preferred.
