Each year IUPAC endorses a large number of independently organized conferences, symposiums and workshops that cover a wide range of specialized topics in chemistry. Endorsement by IUPAC attests to the quality of the scientific program and indicates the host country’s assurance that scientists from all countries may participate. See program details.

International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization – IP 2017

  • This event has passed.

The 12th International Symposium on Ionic Polymerization (IP 2017) will be held at Durham University in the UK from17th to 22nd September 2017, organised and hosted by the Durham Centre for Soft Matter. IP 2017 will be the latest in a series of successful meetings, the most recent of which were held in Bordeaux (France, 2015), Awaji (Japan, 2013), Akron (USA, 2011) and Krakow (Poland, 2009).

The focus of IP 2017 will be on academic and industrial research in the areas of anionic, cationic and ring-opening polymerization mechanisms. Contributions related to other methods of living/controlled polymerization (catalytic, controlled free-radical, and step-growth polymerizations) are welcome.
