The major goals of the project are as follows The overarching theme of the meeting is Polymer Synthesis for a Sustainable Future. There is an immediate and constantly growing need for research related to understanding polymer chemistry from molecules to nano and macroscopic scale assembly in relation to chemical and chain architectural parameters. New synthetic methods that precisely control the functionality, molecular weight, and assembly of polymers will be discussed. Applications in sensing, responsive polymers, energy, enzyme stabilization and other topics important to the US Military and society as a whole will be covered. This meeting will cover new and exciting research that is at the cutting edge of polymer science and will be a foreground to discuss the latest exciting results in polymer chemistry to move the field forward. It is certain to foster rigorous discussion and initiate collaboration between researchers working in these fields. An additional objective of this symposium is to bring leaders in the field from both the United States and Japan to discuss research from structure and synthesis to application.
