Fluoropolymers are enabling materials which find applications in critical technologies from energy conversion, to microelectronics and photonics, to extreme environment applications to biomaterials. Traditional fluoropolymer technology is nearly 65 years old and it maintains a growth rate above the US GNP. In addition to perfluoropolymers, partially fluorinated polymers will continue to impact a wide range of technologies as better control of their unique optical, electronic, processing, extreme environment stability, and surface properties is achieved. This will be the 11th biennial FLUOROPOLYMER conference hosted by the Division of Polymer Chemistry.
Topics will include
Advanced manufacturing and composite processingNew organofluorine chemistries toward new fluoropolymer architecturesTopics of F-polymer involving environment and recycling (environmental impact and regulatory status)Fundamental and advanced technology tutorialsMonomer and polymer synthesis and mechanismsStructure / property relationshipsCoatings and surfacesBiological and biomedical applicationsMembrane and filtrationEnergy applications (storage, conversion, transmission)Photonic, optical, and electronic applicationsIndustrial elastomers and plasticsComposites, hybrids, and interphasesSemi-fluorinated polymers for emerging applicationsReactive and energetic materials (very popular since started at FP2012)
