Functional Networks and Gels

Macromolecular Symposia, Vol. 200
Wiley-VCH, 2003, pp. 1–296
This volume of Macromolecular Symposia contains papers presented at Polymer Networks 2002, the 16th Polymer Networks Group Meeting, held in Autrans, France, from 2 to 6 September 2002.
The contents of this volume are a reflection of the topics of the conference, the central theme of which was Functional Networks and Gels. Theoretical papers address such questions as photo-contraction, gels in contact with surfaces, and hyperelasticity in filled networks, as well as formation and structure-property relationships of networks and gels, including modeling approaches. Several experimental papers are devoted to the changes in the properties due to filler effects and to the osmotic behavior of special networks. Functional network topics covered in the contributions are wide-
ranging, dealing with encapsulation of magnetic and conducting moieties in networks, biological and biomedical applications of reversible physical gels, high-swelling networks for use as super-absorbing materials, and environmentally responsive hydrogels.
