Conference Reveals Wider Range of Nanocomposites.

Nanocomposite technology is evolving in many new directions, as indicated by the program of the "Nanocomposites 2001" conference scheduled for June 25-27 in Chicago. The conference is sponsored by Executive Conference Management and cosponsored by PLASTICS TECHNOLOGY magazine. The two-day meeting will host 38 presentations by speakers from the U.S., Europe, Asia, and Australia.

Although most polymer nanocomposites discussed to date have involved PP, nylon, and PET, conference speakers will also present nanocomposites of fluoropolymers, TPOs, polystyrene, SAN, EVA, conductive polymers, and foams. And while most prior work has involved nanoclay fillers, the conference will provide information on nanocomposites of ceramic fiber, TiO2, magnetic particles, carbon nanotubes, and even other polymers ("molecularly reinforced polymers").
