American Chemical Society The American Chemical Society (ACS) is a learned society (professional association) based in the United States that supports scientific inquiry in the field of chemistry. Founded in 1876 at New York University, the ACS currently has over 160,000 members at all degree-levels and in
ACS symposium series; 912
This collection of 13 papers from the symposium given at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society in March and April 2004 describes contributors' work in the diverse field of polymeric materials, particularly films, and especially their research on stratification processes, which are essential to understand in cognitive-driven molecular entities. The papers include an introduction to stimuli-responsive macromolecules Macromolecules
A large molecule composed of thousands of atoms.

Papers on physico-chemical aspects of stimuli- responsive polymers include such topics as temperature-responsive films at the air-water interface, stimuli-responsive behaviors, florescent flo·res·cence
