363 Nanoscale Structure in Polymers

Tuesday, November 10, 2015: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
251B (Salt Palace Convention Center)

We invite papers that describe recent developments in synthesis, characterization and processing of nanostructured polymeric materials. Experimental papers describing the resulting nanoscale structure and how it translates to attractive and useful properties are especially welcome. Nanostructured polymers could include multi-layered materials, polymer blends, block copolymers, or liquid-crystalline 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 Inhomogeneous Polymers. Authors may submit to either session.+++
