About this book


This monograph contains manuscripts, poster abstracts and summary statements representing the contributions of a group of scientists who participated in the sixth annual Texas A&M Industry-University Cooperative Chemistry Program (IUCCP) at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, March 22-24, 1988. This symposium on "Functional Polymers" was organized by a university-industrial steering committee consisting of Dr. D. Keene, Hoechst Celanese; Dr. D. E. McLemore, Dow Chemical Company; Dr. B. Frushour, Monsanto Company; Dr. S. Corley, Shell Development; Dr. F. Hoffstadt, BPAmerica; Dr. D. E. Bergbreiter, Texas A&M University; Dr. C. A. J. Hoeve, Texas A&M University; Dr. C. R. Martin, Texas A&M University; Dr. A. Clearfield, Texas A&M University; and Dr. A. E. Martell, Texas A&M University. The symposium itself was generously supported by the industrial companies participating in the IUCCP program. These sponsoring chemical companies include; Shell Development Company, Dow Chemical Company, BPAmerica, Monsato Company and Hoechst Celanese. The choice of "Functional Polymers" as the subject for this symposium reflects the rapid developments occurring in the broad field of polymer science and the potential for using polymeric derivatives in many new exciting and potentially profitable applications. The invited papers and submitted posters reflect the diversity of this field and include many different topics ranging from biomedical applications of polymers to conducting polymers to use of polymers as lithographic masks and recording media. General topics included in the symposium were: photoresponsive polymers, polymer blends, electronically conductive polymers, polymers catalysts, biomedical polymers and membrane transport and permeability.
