Smart Coatings conference held.

Eastern Michigan University's Coatings Research Institute will present Smart Coatings 2005, February 16-18 at the Grosvenor Resort and Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista/Orlando, FL.

This three-day conference will focus on advances in such areas as anti-microbial and hygienic coatings; organic nanotechnology based coatings; stimulus and response coatings; and self-assembled intelligent layers.

Session 1 on smart coatings will include the following presentations: "21st century materials: Coatings that interact with their environment," Robert F. Brady, Naval Research Lab; "Technology to efficiently fabricate photonic crystal materials for controlling light transmission and chemical sensing applications," Sanford A. Asher, University of Pittsburgh; "Fouling-resistant, active Xerogel coatings doped with peroxide-activating catalysts," Michael R. Detty, SUNY; and "pH-responsive copolymer films by surface-catalyzed polymerization," G. Kane Jennings, Dongshun Bai and Brian M. Habersberger, Vanderbilt University.

Session 2 on stimuli responsive coatings will include the following presentations: "Stimuli responsive smart polymer films," Sergiy Minko, Clarkson University; "Thermoset siloxane-urethane fouling release coatings," Dean C. Webster, Partha Majumdar, Abdullah Ekin and Robert Pieper, North Dakota State University; "Synthesis and formulation of a removable conformal coating using Diels-Alder thermally-reversible adducts," J.H. Aubert, D.R. Tallant, P.S. Sawyer and M.J. Garcia, Sandia National Laboratories; and "Additives containing nanomaterials--paradigm shift in parquet coatings formulations," John Du and Klaus Shulte, BYK Chemie.

Session 3 on antimicrobial materials and coatings will include the following presentations: "Anatase Ti[O.sub.2] nanocomposites for antimicrobial coatings," Guifen Fu, Patricia S. Vary and Chhiu-Tsu Lin, Northern Illinois University; "Cleanability and antimicrobial efficacy of a titanium dioxide coating," Robert S. Donofrio, Robin Bechanko, Audra Bildeaux and Maryann Sanders, NSF International; "Formulation and evaluation of organic antibicrobial coatings," D.L. Clemans, S.J. Rhoades, J.J. Kendzorski, Q. Xu and J. Baghdachi, Eastern Michigan University; and "Chitosan-based polymeric core-shell particles as antimicrobial agents for cotton," Pei Li, Weijun Ye, Man-Fai Leung, John Xin, Tsz-Leung Kwong and Kam-Len Lee, Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

Session 4 on smart coatings and materials will include the following presentations: "Smart coatings for multifunctional usage," Mark D. Soucek, University of Akron: "Solar infrared reflective intelligent pigments for exterior applications," Kenneth Loye, Ferro Performance Pigments; "Easyclean effect by using silicone/acrylate copolymers," Janos Hajas, BYK-Chemie USA; "Antimicrobial coatings for steel products," F.A. Myers and L.R. Price, AK Coatings: and "Pressure sensing paints based on fluoroacrylic polymers doped with phosphorescent divalent osmium complexes," Brenden Carlson and Gregory D. Phelan, University of Washington.

Session 5 on smart polymers and coatings will include the following presentations: "Electroactive polymers and smart coatings for corrosion inhibition of aluminum alloys," Patrick Kinlen, Crosslink Polymer Research; "Synthesis of Si[O.sub.2]/polystyrene nanocomposite particles via miniemulsion polymerization," Sheng-Wen Zhang, Shu-Xue Zhou, Yu-Ming Weng and Li-Min Wu, Fudan University, China: "Electrically conductive polymer coatings as replacements for chromate conversion coatings," Peter Zarras, Nicole Anderson, Roxanne L. Quintana, Andre Guenther, Nicholas Prokupuk, Cindy Webber, Lawrence Baldwin, John D. Stenger-Smith and Joni M. Pentony, NAV AIR-WD: "Oxidative resistive coatings at high temperatures for iron cores," Charles A. Sizemore and Chhiu-Tsu Lin, Northern Illinois University; and "Ca[(OH).sub.2] based stimuli responsive surface coating," Bryan C.G. Glynson, Alistagen.

Registration for Smart Coatings 2005 costs $800 for industry members, $400 for academe members and $150 for students. Cost for the symposium dinner, to be held at 7 p.m on Thursday, February 17, is $60. Further information on this symposium is available from Sandra Tanner (734) 487-2203.
