In the last decades, investigation in the field of preparation and application of polymer membranes achieved remarkable success. A large number of papers and conference contributions devoted to this topic reflect the fast development of membrane research.

With the aim to meet an ever-increasing interest in knowledge concerning synthetic polymer membranes and their utilization in modern technologies, the well-known Prague Meetings on Macromolecules (P.M.M.), already 61 in total, included the issue of membranes 'In the programme. The 41st Microsymposium of P. M. M. "Polymer Membranes" under the auspices of International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry was held at the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, in Prague on 16-19 July, 2001. More than one hundred participants from 19 countries took part in this scientific event.

The Proceedings comprised 8 main and 20 special lectures of prestigious experts, and 74 poster contributions. Particular attention was paid to the following topics: (a) conductive polymer membranes, (b) polymer electrolyte membranes for fuel cells, (c) gas separation membranes, (d) membrane hybrid systems, and (e) polymer membranes for separation of biological mixtures. The quality and wide scope of the presented results is convincing evidence that developments in this attractive research area continue at a great rate.

I appreciate professional contributions of all the authors imparting the high level to

the Microsymposium. My sincere thanks are addressed to Karel Ulbrich, Director of the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry, and to P.M.M. members with Drahomír Vyprachticky (Head) and Jaroslav Kahovec (Ediitor). I owe my thanks also to the International Advisory Board, to the Local Programme Committee for its demanding work, and to sponsors for financial support.

Miroslav Bleha
Microsymposium Chairman
