22nd Discussion Conference of P.M.M. on Spectroscopy of Partially
Ordered Macromolecular Systems
21-24 July 2003, Prague, Czech Republic
> Back to Calendar
This conference continues in the tradition of the Prague Meetings on
Macromolecules, organized since 1967. It will deal with various aspects
of detection and evaluation of order emerging in systems of synthetic
as well as natural macromolecules in bulk or solution by molecular spectroscopy.
The conference will also tackle relative ordering on various scales
accessible to molecular spectroscopy, in particular molecular (preferred
conformations, increased persistence length, ordering of low-molecular-weight
ligands and counterions), supramolecular (complex formation, short-range
ordering interactions) and supermolecular or phase-like (micelles, microphases
and other nanostructures, microscopic domains in polymer blends, etc.).
Main methods probing into emerging order, discussed at the conference,
will be high-resolution liquid-and solid-state NMR (spectra, relaxation,
spin-diffusion, self-diffusion, etc.) and vibrational spectroscopy (infrared,
Raman, micro-Raman imaging, etc.).
