#604 - Nanoscale Structure in Polymers III: Polymer Nanocomposites (TF016)
We invite papers generally focused on (1) the fabrication and processing of polymer nanocomposites, (2) theoretical developments leading to the explanation of observed phenomena, and (3) applications of polymer nanocomposites. Papers highlighting novel phenomena, new materials and new theories are welcomed.
