Biennial polymer symposium planned.

Biennial polymer symposium planned

The ACS Division of Polymer Chemistry will hold its 15th Biennial Polymer Symposium on the topic, "Advances in new materials," November 17-21 at the Pier 66 Resort and Marina in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

The program will be presented by recognized leaders in major areas of new polymeric materials, according to the sponsor. Topics will include advances in new high performance polymers, polymers for electronic applications, electrically conducting polymers, nonlinear optics, silicon- and zirconium-containing polymers, and polymers derived from biological media. The Polymer Division Award will be presented to Professor M. Szwarc at an award banquet.

The technical presentations will also be complemented by a poster session that will run during three morning sessions.

The registration fee for the meeting is $475 per participant and $200 per guest. For further information on this meeting, contact Dr. J.C. Salamone (407) 451-9260.
