As part of its activities, UNESCO encourages and sponsors UNESCO Schools and scientific conferences in collaboration with scientific associations such as the IUPAC. The UNESCO School and Conference on Macromolecules and Materials Science is held annually at different locations in South Africa. World authorities in various fields of macromolecular science 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 to South African students and senior staff from different universities and research institutions.
The 6th UNESCO School & IUPAC Conference (14–17 April 2003, Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga, South Africa) focused on polymer properties with a special session on the characterization of polyolefins. Abridged versions of a number of papers have been compiled in this volume of Macromolecular Symposia. The content of the papers is also available in the Virtual Teaching Encyclopaedia, which also contains papers from previous UNESCO conferences.
