Lehigh schedules 36th annual latex short course, June 6-10.

Lehigh University, Bethlehem, PA, will hold its 36th annual one-week short course entitled, "Advances in Emulsion Polymerization and Latex Technology," on June 6-10, 2005 in their Sinclair Laboratory Auditorium. The course is designed for engineers, chemists, other scientists and managers actively involved in emulsion work, and persons who wish to develop expertise in the area.

An in-depth study of the synthesis and properties of high polymer latexes, the course material includes a balance of theory and application as well as a balance between chemical and physical problems. Lectures will be given by leading academic and industrial personnel and will include introductory material and review and will progress through recent research results.

A preliminary program is as follows:
