Vol. 24, No. 1
Macromolecular Symposia, Vol. 171, Wiley-VCH, 2001, pp. 1-263,
volume contains selected papers presented at Polymer Networks 2000,
the 15th Polymer Networks Group Meeting, held in Cracow, Poland, from
17-21 July 2000. The conference was organized jointly by the Rzeszów
University of Technology and the Jagellonian University, Cracow, under
the sponsorship of IUPAC and the Polymer Division of the Polish Chemical
Society. It was a satellite meeting of the IUPAC World Polymer Congress,
held the previous week in Warsaw.
to theoretical papers, this volume presents papers on the formation,
structure and properties of interpenetrating polymer networks, and heterogeneous,
filled and hybrid networks. The properties and characterization of hydrophilic
and hydrophobic gels and swollen networks are also covered and there
are contributions on calorimetric and dielectric studies of thermoset
formation and on the structure of amorphous sulfur.
