640 Diffusion in Polymers

Thursday, November 12, 2015: 8:30 AM - 11:00 AM
251C (Salt Palace Convention Center)

Papers in the general area of diffusion in polymers are sought. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, gas, vapor, and liquid diffusion in polymers; multicomponent diffusion in polymers; membrane-based separations; molecular simulations, continuum modeling, and theory of diffusion in polymers; novel experimental techniques for measuring diffusion phenomena; physics of macromolecular dynamics. ***Note to faculty candidates: please include a note to the session chair during submission to alert them to your status***
