725 Biomacromolecular Gels

Thursday, November 12, 2015: 3:15 PM - 5:45 PM
251C (Salt Palace Convention Center)

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 from biomacromolecules. Topics pertaining to network/gel/elastomer synthesis, structural characterization, physical properties, crosslinking/curing reactions and kinetics, processing, and other related subjects are appropriate. Presentations may include research in networks and elastomers, model polymer networks, chemical and physical gels, 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 Polymer Networks and Gels. Authors may submit to either session.+++
