POLYMERS FOR SENSORY AND ENERGY-RELATED APPLICATIONS
Date: May 14, 2009 (Thursday), 1:00 to 6:30 pm
Location: Paul Robeson Campus Center, Bergen Room
Rutgers University, Newark Campus
Frieder Jäkle (Rutgers University - Newark)
This symposium will focus on functional polymers for applications as sensors, in optoelectronic devices including OLEDs, and in the emerging field of energy-related materials. Prominent researchers from academia, industry, and government labs will provide an overview of the state-of-the-art and discuss exciting new developments in these areas. The presentations will be accompanied by a poster session, and ample opportunities for networking with professionals involved in polymer chemistry will be provided. Updates will also be posted at the PTG website [http://www.njacs.org/ptg.html].
