Microstructure and properties of thermotropic liquid crystalline polymer blends and composites

The synthesis and modification of thermotropic liquid crystalline polymers (TLCP) for different final applications are currently hot topics of industrial as well as academic research. The copolymerization of different comonomers leads to polymers with different liquid crystalline characteristics, melting temperatures, rheological behavior. The incorporation of some comonomers is applied to reduce the processing temperature but[...]

Accelerating Participation and Leadership of Women in Chemistry

Development of Vision and Strategy: One of the 4 objectives of the 2011 International Year of Chemistry was to celebrate the achievements of women in chemistry and honor Marie Curie. There were several main international activities on this theme. During the "Women Sharing a Chemical Moment in Time" networking event on January 18, 2011, women[...]

IUPAC Safety Training Program Fellows Training at Host Company

The Safety Training Program allows safety practitioners from developing countries to learn more about safety and environmental protective measures by visiting and working in plants of IUPAC Company Associates in the industrialized world. IUPAC administers the Safety Training Program to disseminate state-of-the-art knowledge on safety and environmental protection in chemical production. The beneficiaries are expected[...]

Creation of IUPAC Global Women’s Breakfast Series and a Global Network in Support of Eliminating the Gender Gap in the Chemical Sciences

On January 18, 2011 the first IUPAC Global Women’s Breakfast: Women Sharing a Chemical Moment in Time was organized as part of the International Year of Chemistry (IYC2011) ( On that day, there were close to 100 breakfasts in 44 countries attended by approximately 5000 women chemists, making it one of the largest gatherings of[...]

IYCN-IUPAC Younger Chemist Showcase

Building on the IUPAC100 project: Periodic Table of Younger Chemists (PTChemists), we plan to prepare a series of webinars featuring PTChemists. The overall goal of this project is to attract more younger chemists to participate within the IUPAC, and to do so by targeting PTChemists and members of IYCN who already have some base understanding[...]
