5th Zing Polymer Chemistry Conference

We are proud to announce the 5th Zing Polymer Chemistry Conference will take place in Dublin (Ireland).

The field of polymer chemistry has experienced a renaissance over the last few last years with the discovery of novel mechanisms to control polymer structure, molecular weight, and functionality. Moreover, the preparation of new polymeric materials with stimuli-responsive or dynamic characteristics have led to novel biomedical materials, polymers for electronic applications, and many other advanced materials. Indeed, polymer science is more exciting than ever before.

This conference will be held 5th – 8th August 2016 and will feature recent developments in the area of polymer synthesis and applied science and intends to gather researchers interested in the forefront polymer science and its future applications.

Several Editorial Board members of Polymer Chemistry will be attending:

Eva M. Harth (Vanderbilt University): Conference Chair
David M Haddleton (University of Warwick): Plenary speaker with the talk ‘Sulfur free RAFT in emulsion for multi-block copolymer synthesis
Emily B. Pentzer (Case Western Reserve University): Invited speaker with the talk ‘Polymerization of Silyl Ketenes
Masami Kamigaito (Nagoya University): Invited speaker with the talk ‘New Developments in Controlled Radical and Cationic Polymerizations

We look forward to welcoming you for the 5th Zing Polymer Chemistry Conference!

Warwick Polymer Conference 2016

Warwick Polymer Conference 2016 is the premier conference on polymer chemistry, which focus on the chemical synthesis and chemical properties of polymers.

Held 11–14 July 2016 in Warwick, UK, this year’s conference is the fourth in their series of international polymer chemistry meetings and the largest so far with almost 600 delegates. The program is designed for all to spend social time as well as scientific time.

Polymer Chemistry proudly sponsors this conference, which will feature a number of lectures by both established researchers from across the globe and early-career scientists who are making recent, novel contributions. Contributed oral and poster presentations will also add to the mix.

Mark your calendar today and register now!


Executive Editor, Polymer ChemistryMeet the team:

Dr Neil Hammond (Executive Editor of Polymer Chemistry) will be attending the event. He would love to hear about your research and meet with our readers, authors and referees. Please do get in touch with Neil if you would like to arrange a meeting in advance.

IP’15 – International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization

IP’15 - International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization

The 11th International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization (IP’15) will be held at Bordeaux University in the South West of France from 5th – 10th July 2015, organized and hosted by the Polymer Institute.

IP’15 will be the latest in a series of successful meetings, the most recent of which were held in Awaji (Japan, 2013), Akron (USA, 2011), Krakow (Poland, 2009), Kloster Banz (Germany, 2007), Goa (India, 2005), Boston (USA, 2003), Crete (2001, Greece).

IP’15 has roots from the series of international symposia on Cationic, Anionic, and Ring-Opening Polymerizations, which were merged as International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization in 1995, held in Istanbul (Turkey). Decision of the merger was made in the 11th International Symposium on Cationic Polymerization and Related Processes, held in Borovetz, Bulgaria, in 1993, with the recognition of closer relationship and interplay among these polymerization methods, in view of precise control of polymer structures and macromolecular architectures. Thus this symposium on Ionic Polymerization will be the 22nd symposium as the Cationic series as well as the 11th one named “Ionic Polymerization“.

Topics will cover academic and applied research in the areas of anionic, cationic, and related polymerization mechanisms. Contributions related to other methods of living/controlled polymerization (catalytic, controlled free-radical, and step-growth polymerizations) are welcome, as well as industrial applications and processes of these well-controlled polymerizations. For further details about the conference visit the website or email the organising committee.
