Macromolecular Symposia—recent
volumes

Radical Polymerization: Kinetics and Mechanism
Editors: M. Buback and A. M. V. Herk
Macromolecular Symposium, Vol. 248
WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH, 2007, pp. 1–258

This volume of Macromolecular Symposia contains articles of the invited speakers at the IUPAC-sponsored International Symposium on “Radical Polymerization: Kinetics and Mechanism” held in Il Ciocco (Italy) during the week 3–8 September 2006. (See report, page 28)

This symposium was the fourth within the series of so-called SML conferences, which are the major scientific forum for addressing kinetic and mechanistic aspects of free-radical polymerization and of controlled radical polymerization.

The symposium comprised five major themes:

  • Fundamentals of free-radical polymerization
  • Heterogeneous polymerization
  • Controlled radical polymerization
  • Polymer reaction engineering
  • Polymer characterization

Polychar-14—World Forum on Advanced Materials
Masaru Matsuo, Kohji Tashiro,
and Yuezhen Bin (editors)
Macromolecular Symposia, Vol. 242
Wiley-VCH, 2006, pp. 1–324

The synthesis and processing of polymer materials have been advanced in many research works to increase their performance under mechanical stress and in various chemical and thermal conditions. Recently, there has been increasing interest in developing polymer materials with many functional properties such as electro-conductivity, piezoelectricity, heat and weather resistance, super-absorbance, and permeability. These high-performance or high-functional materials are replacing aluminum and other structural metals in certain electronic and optical applications and in computers. Novel methods for controlling polymer structure and characterization, novel architectures for polymers, and novel concepts for nano-scale materials are leading to these new applications.

This issue of Macromolecular Symposia is devoted to papers from the POLYCHAR-14 World Forum on Advanced Materials, held at Nara Women’s University in Nara City, Japan, April 17–22, 2006. The papers demonstrate the spectacular advances in polymer synthesis, processing, manufacturing, and properties.

Recent Trends in Ionic Polymerization
D. Baskaran and S. Sivaram (editors)
Macromolecular Symposia, Vol. 240
Wiley-VCH, 2006, pp. 1–251

The IUPAC Symposium on Ionic Polymerization, held in Goa, India, from 23–28 October, 2005, provided an opportunity for the Indian scientific community to interact with leading scientists from around the world working in the area of ionic polymerization. This issue of Macromolecular Symposia contains selected papers from the conference.

Advanced Polymers, Composites and Technologies
J. Marosi and T. Czigány (editors)
Macromolecular Symposia, Vol. 239
Wiley-VCH, 2006, pp. 1–265

This issue of Macromolecular Symposia contains selected papers presented at the 8th International Symposium on Polymers for Advanced Technologies (PAT 2005) held in Budapest in September 2005. Polymer technologies used in the pharmaceutical and biomedical fields, such as photo-electronics, environmental biodegradable systems, and specific composites, are increasingly interrelated. As this collection of papers shows, the following advancements were the result of interdisciplinary research:

  • rapid developments in syntheses
  • greater understanding of the theoretical basis of multicomponent systems
  • increased possibilities for simple and controllable nanocomposite technologies
  • advancements in surface/interface engineering
