Polymers (08a)

#437 - Polymer Reaction Engineering Kinetics and Catalysis I (08A12)
This session will cover topics of current interest in polymerization kinetics, catalysis and reaction engineering. Talks may include areas such as the chemistry of polymerization, polymer reactions and physical interactions, design of new catalysts for controlled polymerizations, and polymerizations in novel media and/or reactor configurations. Papers highlighting the engineering aspects of polymerization such as control of reaction conditions are welcome. Methods used to investigate and characterize reactions and microenvironments within polymer systems are also encouraged.
