#396 - Interfacial Phenomena in Materials Processing / Composites (01C05)
This session focuses on the roles of interfacial phenomena in processing of dense disperse systems and composites. Materials of interest include but are not limited to particle suspensions, polymer-nanoparticle composites and sol-gel systems. We welcome both experimental and theoretical contributions dealing with interfacial properties of composite materials as well as relevant industrial and commercial applications.
