We are proud to announce the 5th Zing Polymer Chemistry Conference will take place in Dublin, Ireland in August 2016.

The field of polymer chemistry has experienced a renaissance over the last few last years with the discovery of novel mechanisms to control polymer structure, molecular weight, and functionality. Moreover, the preparation of new polymeric materials with stimuli-responsive or dynamic characteristics have led to novel biomedical materials, polymers for electronic applications, and many other advanced materials. Indeed, polymer science is more exciting than ever before.

This conference will feature recent developments in the area of polymer synthesis and applied science and intends to gather researchers interested in the forefront polymer science and its future applications.
