649 Polymer Networks and Gels

Thursday, November 20, 2014: 8:30 AM
International 10 (Marriott Marquis Atlanta)
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. ***Note to faculty candidates: please include a note to the session chair during submission to alert them to your status*** +++Note: this session will be sorted jointly with Biomacromolecular Gels. Authors may submit to either session.+++
