Call for Abstracts – ACS Fall Meeting, 8/19-8/23 2012, Philadelphia PA


“Advances in Methods and Applications of Scanning Probe Microscopy to Polymer Materials”


This symposium will focus on recent research progress to understand mechanical, rheological, thermal, electrical, and self-assembly behavior of polymers on the nanoscale and to establish composition-processing-morphology-performance relationship.  Experimental and theoretical aspects of all SPM based methods will be considered, including traditional mechanical, thermal, and electrical based methods as well as more recent multifrequency measurements and high speed AFM.  Application of SPM to a wide variety of polymer materials is to be covered including amorphous and semicrystalline polymers, nanocomposites, block copolymers, elastomers, impact copolymers or toughened polymers, conductive polymers, single polymer chains, etc.


Invited speakers include:


Robert Carpick (University of Pennsylvania), Steve Minne (Bruker), Yifu Ding (University of Colorado), Sergei Magonov (NT-MDT), Liang Fang (Arkema), Ken Nakajima (Tohoku University), Greg Haugstad (University of Minnesota), Rene Overney (University of Washington), Jamie Hobbs (University of Sheffield), Roger Proksch (Asylum Research), Donna Hurley (NIST), Arvind Raman (Purdue University)

Kevin Kjoller (Anasys), Vladimir Tsukruk (Georgia Inst. of Tec)h, Mark Van Landingham (Army Research Lab), Gil Walker (University of Toronto), Robert Magerle (Technical University of Chemnitz), Julius Vancos (Univ. of Twente)


To submit abstract, go to, POLY division, this symposium.  Abstract and preprint submission deadline on March 19th, 2012.
