Following current CDC

​Aligning with the CDC and the American Chemical Society events, POLY is continuing to monitor the ongoing situation of COVID-19. Amid the pandemic, we recognize the continued difficulty in committing to and attending events in person. However, POLY Members continue to provide feedback about their desire for in-person options. POLY will be working hard to ensure safe and healthy events for everyone no matter the medium. POLY and the Emeline do not impose a vaccine mandate; however, masks are encouraged of all attendees, especially those who are unvaccinated. For the most up-to-date information regarding the virus and travel advisories, please refer to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website, the U.S. Department of State, and the World Health Organization. Attendees are also advised to check local public health authority guidance for any additional local requirements.

This workshop will focus on recent progress in the rapidly developing field of reversible deactivation radical polymerization. With the great success of the long-standing ACS POLY symposium on the topic, and organized by Kris Matyjaszewski, Nicolay Tsarevsky, Haifeng Gao, and Brent Sumerlin, these organizers are planning a workshop that will bring together leaders in the field on the latest advances.
