This session will cover a broad assortment of topics within polymer science and chemical engineering, with the common theme of polymer networks, gels, and elastomers. Topics pertaining to network/gel/elastomer synthesis, structural characterization, physical properties, crosslinking/curing reactions and kinetics, processing, and other related subjects are appropriate. Presentations can include research in networks and elastomers, model polymer networks, chemical and physical gels, biopolymer networks, interpenetrating networks, and other lightly crosslinked materials. Papers presenting experimental results, simulations, and theoretical/modeling are equally welcome. *** Presenters taking part in the Meet-the-Faculty-Candidate session should identify themselves when submitting an abstract.
