The success of the Division of Polymer Chemistry (POLY) webinars made clear that the polymer community benefits from seminars accessible to all members, especially those who cannot travel to ACS Meetings and POLY workshops. In collaboration with ACS Webinars, POLY is providing access to in depth thematic content in modern areas of Polymer Chemistry in the form of a POLY Webshop. Webshops feature a four-hour virtual workshop experience without requiring members to account for travel time or substantial expenses.

For the November installment of POLY Webshops and hosted by Dominik Konkolewicz (Miami U,) the webshop will highlight four speakers (Kris Matyjaszewski, Tanja Junkers, Rachel O'Reilly, and Brent Sumerlin) who will be offering expanded 35-minute virtual lectures on the latest advances in Controlled Polymerization. More information regarding specific content is included below.


It is with pleasure to provide this focused virtual workshop experience of modern Polymer Chemistry content for POLY members for accessing anywhere and to encourage our members who do not already attend meetings to take advantage of this valuable membership experience. Since registration is only $49.00 usd, please register early to ensure that your ability to attend is confirmed.  Register now.
