Polymers occupy a major place and pivotal position in our materials map today. In application prospects and performance characteristics and in property range and diversity, they offer novelty and versatility that can hardly be matched by any other kind of materials. Polymer chemistry is combining several specialized fields of expertise. It deals not only with the chemical synthesis but Polymer Structures and chemical properties of polymers and polymer bio conjugation, Novel synthetic and polymerization methods. Polymer synthesis is a complex procedure and can take place in a variety of ways. Polymers are long chain; giant organic molecules are assembled from many smaller molecules called monomers. Polymers consist of many repeating monomer units in long chains, sometimes with branching or cross-linking between the chains. A chemical reaction forming polymers from monomers is called polymerization, of which there are many types. Polymers have come to play an essential and ubiquitous role in everyday life - from plastics and elastomers on the one hand to natural biopolymers such as DNA and proteins on the other hand.

Polymer characterization is the analytical branch of polymer science. The discipline is concerned with the characterization of polymeric materials on a variety of levels. Characterization of polymers is important for synthesis of new materials or at the time of evaluation of competitive product. The characterization typically has as a goal to improve the performance of a product. Polymer Characterization includes determining molecular weight distribution, the molecular structure, the morphology of the polymer, thermal properties, mechanical and optical properties, and any additives. Many characterization techniques should ideally be linked to these desirable properties of the material. It also includes the development and refinement of analytical methods with statistical models which help to understand phase separation and phase transistion of polymers. It is a complex and multi-faceted process.

Bioplastics are one of the driving tool in the advancement of plastics. Bio plastics are plastics derived from renewable biomass sources, such as vegetable fats and oils, from used plastic bottles and other containers using microorganisms rather than petroleum. Bioplastics are fossil savior and gives additional recovery at the end by degradation.as Petro based polymers produce more greenhouse gases. Some, but not all, bioplastics are designed to biodegrade. Many bioplastics are biodegradable, which is - in theory - one of their greatest advantages. They may or may not be biodegradable depending on how they are manufactured. Biodegradable bioplastics can break down in either anaerobic or aerobic environments. Bioplastics can be composed of starches, cellulose, biopolymers, and a variety of other materials.

A polymer blend or polymer mixture is a member in which at least two polymers are blended together to create a new material with different physical properties. Polymer blends are physical mixtures of two or more polymers with/without any chemical bonding between them. The objective of polymer blending is a practical one of achieving commercially viable products through either unique properties or lower cost than some other means might provide. Blending technology also provides attractive opportunities for reuse and recycling of polymer wastes. When two or more polymers are mixed, the phase structure of the resulting material can be either miscible or immiscible. Due to their high molar mass, the entropy of mixing of polymers is relatively low and consequently specific interactions are needed to obtain blends, which are miscible or homogeneous on a molecular scale. This session will include discussion on thermodynamics and compatibilisation of polymer blends and its applications. Compatibilisation is very useful for improving the dispersity in polymer blends. Additionally, medical polymers may be blended with specialized additives for enhanced properties to achieve specific functional requirements.

Biodegradable polymers are defined as Polymers comprised of monomers linked to one another through functional groups and have unstable links in the backbone. They are broken down into biologically acceptable molecules that are metabolized and removed from the body via normal metabolic pathways. This session presents the product made from natural fiber reinforce biodegradable polymer composites are yet to be seen in high magnitude. The development of biodegradable polymer composites promotes the use of environmentally friendly materials. Most in the industry use the term bioplastic to mean a plastic produced from a biological source. All (bio- and petroleum-based) plastics are technically biodegradable, meaning they can be degraded by microbes under suitable conditions. Biodegradable Polymers can also use to control the drug release rate from the formulations. The applications of polymers in drug delivery have been realized because polymers offer unique properties which so far have not been attained by any other materials. Current and future developments in biodegradable polymers and renewable input materials focus relate mainly to the scaling-up of production and improvement of product properties. Larger scale production will increase availability and reduce prices. It is often necessary to seek a compromise between the desired material properties and biodegradability.

Nanotechnology is one of the trending areas for current research and development in basically all technical disciplines. Nanotechnology is science, engineering of functional systems at the molecular scale and technology conducted at the Nano scale, which is about 1 to 100 nanometers This obviously includes Polymer Nanotechnology which include microelectronics, polymer-based biomaterials, Nano medicine, Nano emulsion particles; polymer bound catalysts, electro spun nanofabrication, imprint lithography, and block copolymer domain morphology is usually at the Nano scale level. The transition from micro- to nano-particles lead to change in its physical as well as chemical properties. Increase in the ratio of the surface area to volume and the size of the particle are the key factors in this. Nano composites have become a prominent area of current research and development. Polymer Nano composites (PNC) consist of a polymer or copolymer having nanoparticles or nanofillers dispersed in the polymer matrix. These may be of different shape (e.g., platelets, fibers, spheroids), but at least one dimension must be in the range of 1–50 nm. Important extensions have been made in combining inorganic materials with polymers and in combining different classes of polymers together in nanoparticle form.

Polymers are a highly diverse class of materials which are available in all fields of engineering from avionics through drug delivery system, bio-sensor devices, Holography, 3D printing, tissue engineering, cosmetics etc. and the improvement and usage of these depends on polymer applications .The applications of polymeric materials and their composites are still increasing rapidly due to their below average cost and ease of manufacture. This in turn fuels further development in research.
Research and development of bioplastics substances for medical, dental and pharmaceutical use have hovered on the front lines for years. Gelatin-based capsules made of animal or vegetable matter, for example, which naturally dissolve in the digestive tract, are in common use. Biodegradable stitches, which do not require manual removal after healing, are regularly used to suture wounds and surgical incisions.
Biopolymers are available as coatings for paper rather than the more common petrochemical coatings. Bioplastics are used for disposable items, such as packaging and crockery. They are also often used for bags, trays, fruit and vegetable containers and in marine sciences .These plastics are also used in non-disposable applications including mobile phone casings, carpet fibers, insulation car interiors, fuel lines, and plastic piping. New electroactive bioplastics are being developed that can be used to carry electric current. Medical implants made of PLA (polylactic acid), which dissolve in the body, can save patients a second operation. Compostable mulch films can also be produced from starch polymers and used in agriculture.
