#555 - Nanoscale Structure in Polymers II: Nanostructured Polymeric Materials (TF015)
We invite papers that describe recent developments in synthesis, characterization and processing of nanostructured polymeric materials. Experimental papers describing the dynamics at the nanoscale are especially welcome. The nanostructured polymers could be multi-layered materials, polymer blends, block copolymers, or liquid-crystalline polymers.
