#2 Functional Polymeric Materials Conference

05 Aug 2015 - 08 Aug 2015

Ascot, UK

Synopsis

This conference has now finished. The 3rd Functional Polymeric Materials conference is now available for registration. 

This second Functional Polymeric Materials conference seeks to bring together leaders from across the field of polymer chemistry, and will include experts in the development of new methodologies, novel applications and will include both fundamental and materials aspects of polymer science. Topics will include new innovations in polymer synthesis and functionalization, with particular focus on structure-property relationships. Applications will also be covered in the areas of drug delivery, smart biomaterials, complex sensing systems, and bioinspired polymeric materials with functionalities that relate to the organization and interactions of their building blocks.

The symposium has invited and contributed talks and posters from scientists from across chemical and materials science disciplines. We believe this blending of people interested in the concepts, rather than specific disciplines, will provide for an enlightening and vibrant multi-day conference. 

Key Sessions:

Academics from inorganic, organic, and biological polymeric materials backgrounds will be represented. A broad range of topics will be covered, including:

  • stimuli-responsive materials
  • stimuli-responsive soft matter
  • stimuli-responsive hybrid/composite materials
  • molecular motors
  • swimmers
  • biomolecular self-assembly
  • dissipative / fueled self-assembly
  • bioinspired materials
  • catalysis
  • synthetic methodology
  • catalytic self-assembly
  • activated catalysis at surfaces and interfaces
  • nanoparticle assemblies
  • multi-component systems
  • organized assemblies
  • self-replicating molecular systems
  • self-sorting molecular systems
  • enzyme responsive materials
  • non-equlibrium self-assembly
  • translational applications in biomedicine
  • translational applications in detection systems
  • translational applications in nanotechnology
