International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization – IP 2017

The 12th International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization (IP 2017) will be held at Durham University, UK from 17 – 22 September, organised and hosted by the Durham Centre for Soft Matter. 

The focus of IP 2017 will be on academic and industrial research in the areas of anionic, cationic and ring-opening polymerization mechanisms. Contributions related to other methods of living/controlled polymerization (catalytic, controlled free-radical, and step-growth polymerizations) will also be covered.

IP 2017 will feature also feature number of international leading invited speakers, as well as oral presentations, short talks for younger researchers and a poster session, supported by Polymer Chemistry, which will provide participants the opportunity to highlight their recent work. Submission deadlines for all abstracts is 31 May.

If you would like to attend, please register before 1 August in order to claim the early-bird rate. You can also read more about the symposium on the IP 2017 website.

3rd Functional Polymeric Materials Conference

The third FPM series will bring together leaders in polymers and polymeric materials from around the world to describe their most recent and cutting edge discoveries.

The aim of the conference, which takes place in Rome, Italy from 7-10 July, is to capture the multidisciplinary nature of polymer chemistry with topics spanning “basic synthesis and methodology” to “nanoscale and bioinspired materials”.

This conference will appeal to academics, students, postdoctoral research associates, industrial scientists and leaders, governmental researchers and those currently involved in the development of polymeric material applications to address the most critical needs in areas such as medicine, energy and sustainability.

Talk submission ends 1 Mayregsiter here

Poster submission ends 10 Maysubmit here

Global Conference on Polymer and Composite Materials 2017

23-25 May 2017, Guangzhou, China

 

Polymer and Composite Materials 2017, which takes place at the South China University of Technologyis dedicated to cover all theoretical and experimental aspects of polymers and composite materials. Building on the hugely successful preceding conferences (PCM 2014 in Ningbo, PCM 2015 in Beijing, and PCM 2016 in Hangzhou), PCM 2017 will provide an ideal academic platform for researchers to present their latest findings, and to facilitate networking and in-depth discussion with peers from Asia, Europe and USA.

The scientific program will focus not only on current advances in the research, but also in the production and use of polymers and composite materials in different fields. The conference setting has a highly focused technical program through plenary, invited, contributed, and poster presentations, supported by Polymer Chemistry and Molecular Systems Design & Engineering.

In addition, the conference will also offer the possibility to publish your research either in the conference proceedings (Indexed by Ei, Scopus, Inspec, CPCI, etc) or in well-known journals with ISI impact factors. You can find out more about how to submit your paper via the publication guide.

Outstanding Reviewers for Polymer Chemistry in 2016

Following the success of Peer Review Week in September 2016 (dedicated to reviewer recognition) during which we published a list of our top reviewers, we are delighted to announce that we will continue to recognise the contribution that our reviewers make to the journal by announcing our Outstanding Reviewers each year.

We would like to highlight the Outstanding Reviewers for Polymer Chemistry in 2016, as selected by the editorial team, for their significant contribution to the journal. The reviewers have been chosen based on the number, timeliness and quality of the reports completed over the last 12 months.

We would like to say a big thank you to those individuals listed here as well as to all of the reviewers that have supported the journal. Each Outstanding Reviewer will receive a certificate to give recognition for their significant contribution.

Dr Athina Anastasaki, University of California Santa Barbara
Dr Brigitte Bibal, Universite Bordeaux
Dr Cyrille Boyer, University of New South Wales
Dr Gaojian Chen, Soochow University
Dr Priyadarsi De, IISER Kolkata
Dr Sophie Guillaume, Institut des Sciences Chimiques de Rennes
Dr Xiaoyu Huang, Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry
Dr Elango Kumarasamy, Colombia University
Dr F.J. Xu, Beijing University of Chemical Technology
Professor Youliang Zhao, Soochow University

We would also like to thank the Polymer Chemistry board and the journal community for their continued support of the journal, as authors, reviewers and readers.

If you would like to become a reviewer for our journal, just email us with details of your research interests and an up-to-date CV or résumé.  You can find more details in our author and reviewer resource centre.
