11th Pacific Polymer Conference

Monday, January 4th, 2010

The Pacific Polymer Conference is the pre-eminent meeting of the Pacific Polymer Federation, the alliance of the polymer societies and polymer divisions of chemical societies from the nations around the Pacific rim.  On December 6th-10th 2009  the event was hosted in Australia at the Cairns Convention Centre, a fine venue for a splendidly organised meeting with a fantastic array of speaker.

The Applied Polymer Chemistry group presented three papers at the 11th Pacific Polymer Conference.

Dr Fellows presented a lecture entitled “Effect of Poly(acrylic acid) Molecular Mass and End-Group Functionality on Calcium Oxalate Crystallisation Authors  CP East, AD Wallace, A Al-Hamzah, WOS Doherty and  CM Fellows.

Mr Al-Hamzah presented a lecture entitled “Apparent Inhibition of Thermal Decomposition of Bicarbonate and Hydrolysis of Carbonate by Poly(Acrylic Acid). The Effect of Molecular Weight and End-Group Functionality.
Authors A Al-Hamzah and CM Fellows.

Mr Rowan Prangley with his poster.

Mr Prangley presented a poster entitled “The truth about surface grafting. A quantitative investigation into ATRP “surface grafting” on commercial Poly(Dimethylsiloxane) substrates.
Authors RP Prangley, AD Wallace and CM Fellows.

An excellent and productive time was had by all!
