Thermodynamics and Transport Properties (01a)

#182 - Thermodynamics of Polymers I (01A18)
We invite contributions associated with the thermodynamics of polymeric systems such as solutions, blends, block and random copolymers, networks, gels, polyelectrolyte solutions, and ionomers. We accept experimental work on phase equilibria in polymers, Landau-based, statistical mechanical and field-theoretical approaches, and novel molecular simulation methodologies.
