Polymers and Organic Chemistry 2002, 14-18 July 2002, San Diego,
> Back to Calendar
The aim of this meeting is to bridge the gap between organic and polymer
chemistry. Speakers and participants will be drawn worldwide from both
the organic and the polymer communities. Topical sessions of the conference
will focus on the impact of polymers in the following subject areas:
- combinatorial chemistry (2 sessions)
- reagents and catalysts
- organic synthesis
No other international or U.S. meeting for many years has brought together
polymer chemists and the organic chemists working on combinatorial methods
and polymer-supported reagents and catalysts. The two groups have much
to learn from each other. New synthesis techniques developed by organic
chemists can be applied by polymer chemists toward modifying the properties
of the materials they prepare. In addition, new polymers prepared by
polymer chemists can be used by organic chemists to improve the yield
and selectivity of combinatorial syntheses.
Approximately 150-200 scientific participants from around the world
are expected to attend this meeting.
