NANOSTRUCTURED POLYMERS AND POLYMER NANOCOMPOSITES

Microsymposium Chairman: Libor Matějka

SCOPE

The science and technology of polymer-based nanomaterials have shown great progress during the last decade. Nanostructured polymer systems, including organic-inorganic polymers, are an area of a high scientific and applied research interest. The goal of this microsymposium is to present the progress and new methods in synthesis and characterization of nanostructured polymers and polymer nanocomposites, as well as recent knowledge about their structure and properties. The process of nanostructuration, modelling of structure-property relationships and applicability of nanocomposites will be discussed. The experts joining the Microsymposium will also discuss the future developments in the field of polymer nanomaterials.
