Special Symposium

Polymer Nanotechnology is the most rapidly growing sections of the Nanotech Conference program. Process and characterization advancements are leading to new functionality and application of polymer nanoparticles.

The extraordinarily large surface area on the nanoparticles presents diverse opportunities to place functional groups on the surface. Particles can be created that can expand/contract with changes in pH, or interact with anti-bodies in special ways to provide rapid ex-vivo medical diagnostic tests. Important extensions have been made in combining inorganic materials with polymers and in combining different classes of polymers together in nanoparticle form.

More recent advances in simulation, chemistry, processing techniques, and analytical instrumentation allow a whole host of new types of polymer particles and polymer nanotechnology applications to be realized. Particles include; hollow, multi-lobed, magnetic, functionalized with reactive groups on the surface, conductive, etc. Our ability to devise new process control strategies have led to the ability to control the shape, chemical composition, internal structure, and morphology of the nanoparticles so as to develop new levels of product performance and application.

We invite you to participate in the Nanotech 2006 Polymer Nanotechnology Special Symposium. Please submit your abstract below. We highly encourage your participation in this community, through your comments, suggestions and offers for assistance in review and organization.

Sessions in the Polymer Nanotechnology Symposium will be coordinated with those in the related Soft Nanotechnology symposium to prevent duplication.
