#150 - Stimuli Responsive Polymers (08A12)
We invite abstracts describing new advances in the development and characterization of polymers engineered to alter structure and properties in response to external stimuli. Experimental contributions should emphasize quantitative characterizations of polymer morphology and its connection to the material performance (e.g., wetting behavior, adhesion, roughness, permeability, etc.). Theoretical work and molecular simulations are especially welcome to provide insight into molecular structure changes.
