361 Inhomogeneous Polymers

Tuesday, November 15, 2016: 12:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Golden Gate 3 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Description:
This session will focus on topics related to polymeric systems that demonstrate nanoscale inhomogeneities, including block copolymers, polymer blends, and polymer nanocomposites where the nanostructure of the material presents interesting new scientific questions or leads to emergent new applications. ***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 Nanoscale Structure in Polymers. Authors may submit to either session.+++
