Polymer Characterization and Materials Science

R. D. Sanderson and H. Pasch
Macromolecular Symposia, Vol. 178. Wiley-VCH, 2002, pp. 1—181. (ISBN 3-527-30468-1)

Contents and Preface

This volume contains selected papers presented at the UNESCO School and IUPAC Conference on Macromolecules and Materials Science, held in Stellenbosh, South Africa, in April 2001. World authorities in various fields of macromolecular science were invited to give tutorials at the UNESCO School and informative plenaries at the conference. The exposure to new ideas and advanced concepts in macromolecular science is of great importance for South African students and senior staff alike. It is particularly valuable that with the support of UNESCO, generous concessions can be made for attendees from disadvantaged communities and from countries with emerging technologies.

The 4th UNESCO School and IUPAC Conference focused on polymer characterization, new polymer architectures and nanomaterials. Abridged versions of a number of papers are compiled to create the present volume of Macromolecular Symposia. The content of the papers is also available in the Virtual Teaching Encyclopaedia which contains papers from previous UNESCO conferences as well <>.
