Report from IUPAC-Sponsored
9th International Conference on Polymer-Based Technology
21-26 May 2000, Tianjin, China
> Back to Calendar
This conference has a long and distinguished history, with its
original focus on reactions of polymer-supported catalysts. It now
covers a wide range of topics in high-tech applications of polymers.
The Tianjin meeting followed the fine tradition of preceding ones.
There were about 150 participants from about 15 countries; half
of the participants were from the host country. The standard of
plenary and contributed papers (including some excellent presentations
from young Chinese scientists) was exemplary. POC'2000 is the first
in the series of these meetings to be sponsored by IUPAC, and, we
hope, not the last. It represents one of many instances where Chinese
scientists support the goals of the Union for the promotion of international
chemical science and technology.
