521 Conjugated Polymers

Wednesday, November 11, 2015: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
251B (Salt Palace Convention Center)

This session will focus on the fundamental science and applications of conjugated polymers. Topics include the synthesis of conjugated polymers, morphology of conjugated polymers, blends, and block copolymers, and studies of photovoltaics, transistors, LEDs, or other devices built from conjugated polymers. ***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 Polymers for Energy Storage and Conversion. Authors may submit to either session.+++
