the last decades, investigation in the field of preparation
and application of polymer membranes achieved remarkable success.
A large number of papers and conference contributions devoted
to this topic reflect the fast development of membrane research.
the aim of meeting an ever-increasing interest in synthetic
polymer membranes and their utilization in modern technologies,
the well-known Prague Meetings on Macromolecules (P. M. M.)
focused the issue of membranes in a recent symposium. The
41st Microsymposium of P. M. M. on "Polymer Membranes" was
held-under the auspices of IUPAC-from 16-19 July 2001 at the
Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry, Academy of Sciences
of the Czech Republic, in Prague. More than 100 participants
from 19 countries took part in this scientific event.
proceedings comprised 8 main and 20 special lectures of prestigious
experts and 74 poster contributions. Particular attention
was paid to the following topics: conductive polymer membranes,
polymer electrolyte membranes for fuel cells, gas separation
membranes, membrane hybrid systems, and polymer membranes
for separation of biological mixtures. The quality and wide
scope of the presented results is convincing evidence that
developments in this attractive research area continue at
a great rate.
