The biennial Pacific Polymer Conference is the official conference co-hosted by the Pacific Polymer Federation (PPF) and the polymer organization of the host country. The PPF was founded in 1987 to encourage and facilitate interactions among polymer organizations of member countries from the Pacific region. Current country members are Australia, Canada, Chile, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, the United States (ACS and APS), and Vietnam. Since the establishment of the PPF, the Pacific Polymer Conference has already taken place on eight occasions.
The most recent Pacific Polymer Conference, held 24–27 November 2003 in Bangkok, Thailand, was a tremendous success in terms of the number of scientific contributions—around 440 oral and poster presentations—and the number of attendees—around 350 from 31 countries. The scientific programs of the conference consisted of one symposium on hydrogels and nine sessions on functional and synthetic polymers, natural and green polymers, polymer blends and composites, polymer colloids and interfaces, polymer engineering, processing, and characterization, polymer crystallization and structural development during processing, elastomers and rubbers, macromolecular architecture, and industrial and imaging polymers.
The selected papers presented in this special volume of Macromolecular Symposia are representatives of the quality and scientific merit of all of the contributions to the PPC-8.
