Introduction

Polymer Colloids can be produced by emulsion polymerization, as well as by a number of other approaches, and are an important industry sector with broad applications. These materials are employed at a large scale in a wide range of well-established applications such as coatings, adhesives, home and personal care along with many emerging applications including medicine, biotechnology, energy, and more. Besides the huge financial value that polymer colloids brought to the markets, the shift from solvent to waterborne dispersions has yielded large and measurable sustainability benefits. This workshop is aiming to bring together the world’s leading scientists from both academia, industry, and government labs to discuss the latest developments in the areas of synthesis, characterization, modeling and the wide applications of colloidal polymers.
