Informing Spectroscopists for Over 40 Years

Fluoropolymer 2020

 28 June 2020 to 1 July 2020
 Denver, Colorado
United States

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 processing
  • New organofluorine chemistries toward new fluoropolymer architectures
  • Topics of F-polymer involving environment and recycling (environmental impact and regulatory status)
  • Fundamental and advanced technology tutorials
  • Monomer and polymer synthesis and mechanisms
  • Structure / property relationships
  • Coatings and surfaces
  • Biological and biomedical applications
  • Membrane and filtration
  • Energy applications (storage, conversion, transmission)
  • Photonic, optical, and electronic applications
  • Industrial elastomers and plastics
  • Composites, hybrids, and interphases
  • Semi-fluorinated polymers for emerging applications
  • Reactive and energetic materials (very popular since started at FP2012)
  • Other events in:
