241 Thermodynamics of Polymers

Monday, November 14, 2016: 3:15 PM - 5:45 PM
Golden Gate 4 (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
Description:
This session invites contributions associated with the thermodynamics of polymeric systems such as solutions, blends, block and random copolymers, networks, gels, polyelectrolyte solutions, and ionomers. We accept experimental, theoretical, and simulation-based explorations in any area related to the thermodynamics and phase equilibria of polymers. ***Note to faculty candidates: please include a note to the session chair during submission to alert them to your status***
