Third Short Course on

ADVANCES IN POLYMER CHEMISTRY AND PROCESSING OF NANOSTRUCTURED POLYMER MATERIALS
Modeling and Simulation in Nanopolymer Processing
Nanostructure by Polymer Chemistry

9th – 10th February 2006, Florence

Purpose

Relevant interest in nanosciences and nanotechnologies as new tools for developments in the European industrial sectors as well as for the creation of new nanotechnology-related industries has arisen only in the last few years. During that time, new methods for synthesis (combinatorial chemistry combined with high rate characterization methods, controlled radical polymerisation, supramolecular chemistry, etc.), processing (surface patterning, self-assembling, intercalation, etc.) and characterization techniques operating at different scales (atomic force miscroscopy, scattering techniques, etc.) were developed, leading to the creation of new and innovative devices and objects from nanostructured polymers and their nanocomposites. The availability of these tools and the necessity to further develop and spread knowledge to propose environment-friendly strategies, required for the production of polymer-based nanocomposites, justifies the creation of a research consortium by networking well-recognized inter disciplinary European research teams.The Third Short Course will be focused on advanced topics of the chemistry and the processing of the Nanostructured Polymeric Materials.

Programme

The course will begin at 8:30 on Thursday 9 th February and end at 14.30 on Friday 10 th February. The timetable is designed to break the work into sessions of about 60 minutes each and give opportunities for discussions with lecturers and other participants.

The programme will include the following topics:
- anionic polymerisation
- controlled radical polymerisation
- nanostructured polymers / controlled polymer architectures
- segmented block copolymers
- nanostructured coatings by sol-gel processes
- modelling of polymer processing
- polymer flow simulations - thermoset based nanocomposites
- modelling of nanocomposite processing

Short Course Venue

The cultural and historical impact of Florence ( Firenze) is overwhelming. Close up, however, the city is one of Italy's most atmospheric and pleasant, retaining a strong resemblance to the small late-medieval centre that contributed so much to the cultural and political development of Europe. Its striking buildings, formidable galleries and treasure-crammed churches attest to the Florentine love of display. Even long after it had set on the political and economic horizon, Florence upheld its elegant appearance: its skyline, all russet rooftops and lofty domes, is indeed picturesque. The course is located in Villa Finaly, which is located on northern Florence hills, ten minutes away from the city centre. One of its missions is to host for short, medium and long stays, students, teachers and researchers.
