In application prospects and performance characteristics and in property range and diversity, polymers offer novelty and versatility that can hardly be matched by any other kind of materials. Polymers are huge macromolecules composed of repeating structural units called monomers. Polymer developments not only include synthesis but also its structural –functional relationship, polymer bio conjugation, and novel polemerization methods.In Polymerization, many monomers are joined together in a chemical reaction to form macromolecules of different sizes and shapes. Polymers are popular in everyday life - from plastics and elastomers on the one side to natural biopolymers such as DNA and proteins on the other hand.

In Polymer Chemistry, Polymerization is a process in which relatively small molecules, called monomers, combine chemically to produce a very large chainlike or network molecule, called a polymer. The two major types of polymerization are addition polymerization and condensation polymerization. Polymerization reactions proceed via either cationic or free-radical mechanisms. This process occurs via a different reaction mechanism depending on functional groups present in reacting compounds and its steric hindrance. Stable molecules like alkenes due to sigma bonding between its carbon atoms, form polymers through relatively simple radical reactions; in contrast to those that involve complex synthesis due to substitution at the carbonyl group of reacting molecules.
Polymer colloids are dispersions of polymer particles in a continuous liquid (mostly aqueous) phase. Particle diameters can be between 20 and 2000 nm. Some polymer colloids, such as rubber latex, occur naturally but many of them are made synthetically. Polymer colloids can be made directly via emulsion polymerization whereby a monomer(s) is polymerized via a free radical polymerization process in an aqueous medium in the presence of a stabilizer system but it is also possible to make the colloids from pre-formed polymers by using processes such as phase inversion or precipitation. The application areas for polymer colloids are diverse, including their use as binders in non-woven fabrics and paper coatings, in synthetic rubbers, in interior and exterior paints, in adhesives, as impact modifiers in toughened plastics, as catalytic supports, in a number of medical diagnostic areas etc. This session presents an overview of the preparation, characterization, and applications of polymer colloids, as well as advancements and future challenges in this field.
Polymer engineering and technology is part of the growing field of materials engineering that focuses on plastics and other polymers. Polymer Engineering is generally an engineering field that designs, analyses, and/or modifies polymer materials. The prediction of their behavior depends on our understanding of these complex systems .It is the amalgamation of Polymer Science with Chemical Engineering. polymer processing techniques requires molecular modeling techniques. Beside metals and ceramics, the recent developments of Polymer Technology have revolutionized the field of material science by increasing the use of polymer based substances from building materials to Packing materials, Fancy decoration articles, Communications, Automobile, Aircrafts, etc. Synthetic polymers have since a long time played a relatively important role in present-day medicinal practice. Polymers are now a major materials used in many industrial applications.

Biodegradable polymers are defined as Polymers comprised of monomers linked to one another through functional groups and are broken down into biologically acceptable molecules that are metabolized and removed from the body via normal metabolic pathways. 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 petroleum-based plastics are technically biodegradable. Biodegradable Polymers can also use to control the drug release rate from the formulations. 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 resulting in increased availability and reduction in prices.

Functional polymers are macromolecules to which functional groups are attached which can be utilized as reagents, catalysts, protecting groups, etc. The use of functional polymer rest on the physical properties of support and the chemical constitution of the attached functional group. The polymer support may be organic or inorganic. Polymer backbone plays a crucial role in performance of functional polymers. A polymer to be used as a support should have significant mechanical stability under the reaction conditions. Such properties of the support play important role in functionalization reactions of polymers .The polymer properties can be modified either by chemical or by changing the physical nature of the polymers. They are cost effective, non-toxic, recycled and thus mediate environment friendly chemistry. This session talks about the modification of polymer backbones, design of functional polymers, its advantages and limitations as well as its various applications.

Polymer Catalysis has become an independent and thriving branch of chemistry. Extensive development of this field is attributed to success achieved in synthesis and investigation of so-called functional polymers as well as to success attained in homogeneous, metal complex catalysis. This has led to the novel idea of heterogenization of homogeneous metal complex catalysts. While the chemical, economic and social advantages of bio catalysis over traditional chemical approaches were recognized a long time ago, their application in industrial production processes have been recently break-through in modern biotechnology (such as robust protein expression systems, directed evolution etc).

Some polymers are pervious, whilst ceramics, metals, and glasses are generally impassable. Diffusion of small molecules through the polymers plays a major role in different scientific and engineering fields such as medicine, textile industry, membrane separations, packaging in food industry etc. Mass transfer through the polymeric membranes including dense and porous membranes relies upon the components includes solubility and diffusivity of the penetrant into the polymer, morphology, fillers, and plasticization. For instance, polymers with high crystallinity usually are less penetrable because of the porosity of crystallites. In the case of nanocomposites, the penetrants cannot diffuse through the structure directly as they are confined. This session centers around the theory and methodology of diffusion process, factors affecting them, thermodynamics of polymer blend, mass transfer across the interface etc.
Nanotechnology is among the most recent research regions and it is characterized as building machines at the sub-atomic scale and includes the control of materials on a nuclear (around two-tenths of a nanometer) scale. It is the science and innovation of little things (under 100 nm in size).This clearly incorporates Polymer Nanotechnology which incorporate microelectronics, polymer-based biomaterials, Nano drug, Nano emulsion particles; polymer bound impetuses, electro spun nano creation and so on. A polymer or copolymer material containing scattered nanoparticles is Nanopolymer .The progress from smaller scale to nano-particles prompt change in its physical and in addition compound properties. Nano composites have turned into an unmistakable region of momentum innovative work. Polymer Nano composites (PNC) is a superior materials which comprise of a polymer or copolymer having nanoparticles or nanofillers scattered in the polymer network and devours 90% of generation of plastics. These might be of various shape (e.g., platelets, filaments, spheroids), however no less than one measurement must be in the scope of 1– 50 nm. It is considered as the materials of the 21st century because of its surprising property blends and extraordinary outline conceivable outcomes.

Kinds of polymers whose monomeric units are held together via highly directional and reversible non-covalent interactions are called Supramolecular Polymers. Non-covalent interactions include hydrogen bonding, π-π interaction, metal coordination, and host-guest interaction. Supramolecular polymers raise from both a fundamental and applied perspective, which in recent years has brought a deep understanding of their physicochemical properties and advanced functionalities.
The session will feature a wide range of topical discussions, highlighting important fields such as Nano machines, meso-scale self-assembly, controlled supramolecular polymerization. A particular focus will be given to the complexity in self-assembly processes and how it can result in novel functions. Small increases in temperature reduces the viscosity by a large extent that allows the materials to be easily processed, and will be useful for several applications. It will become an integral part of the general field of self-assembling polymers, and will find applications in areas ranging from electronics to medicine.

A biomaterial is any substance that has been engineered to interact with biological systems for a medical purpose - either a therapeutic (treat, augment, repair or replace a tissue function of the body) or a diagnostic one. They may be of natural origin or synthesized in a laboratory. Advanced polymeric Biomaterials proceed to serve as a cornerstone of new scientific applied sciences and therapies. The good sized majority of these materials, each natural and synthetic, interact with biological depend besides direct digital communication. However, biological systems have evolved to synthesize and employ naturally-derived materials for the technology and modulation of electrical potentials, voltage gradients, and ion flows. Bioelectric phenomena can be interpreted as strong signalling cues for intra- and inter-cellular communication. These cues can serve as a gateway to link artificial units with biological systems. Specific focal point will be granted to the use of natural and synthetic biological substances as necessary aspects in applied sciences such as thin film electronics, in vitro cell culture models, and implantable medical devices. Future views and emerging challenges will also be highlighted.
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. Polymers are used in different day to day applications like domestic plastics, pipes, bags, wires, etc. The below average cost and ease of manufacture of polymeric materials makes it more useful in todays world. This in turn fuels further development in research. Knowledge of materials which are optimal for each polymer application allows accurate prediction of its behavior and performance.

The marketing mix is an important part of the marketing of polymers and consists of the marketing 'tools' you are going to use. But marketing strategy is more than the marketing of mixed polymers and plastics. The marketing strategy sets your marketing goals, defines your target markets and describes how you will go about positioning the business to achieve advantage over your competitors. The marketing mix, which follows from your marketing strategy, is how you achieve that 'unique selling proposition' and deliver benefits to your customers. When you have developed your marketing strategy, it is usually written down in a marketing plan. The plan usually goes further than the strategy, including detail such as budgets. You need to have a marketing strategy before you can write a marketing plan. Your marketing strategy may serve you well for a number of years but the details, such as budgets for marketing activities, of the marketing plan may need to be updated every year.
Polymer science or macromolecular science is a subfield of materials science concerned with polymers, primarily synthetic polymers such as plastics and elastomers.
