Polymers (08a)

#250 - Structure and Properties of Polymers I (08A01)
Understanding the structure and properties of polymeric materials are of great technical interest from both a practical and fundamental perspective. This session will encompass topics related to polymer science and engineering with the common theme of general structure-property relationships. Topics that pertain to synthesis, structural characterization, physical properties, solution properties, functionalization and other related areas are sought. Papers presenting experimental results, simulations, and theoretical/modeling are equally welcome.
