The volume contains selected papers from the inaugural US-Mexico Symposium on Advances in Polymer Science, MACROMEX 2008. This first bi-national conference was the result of a joint effort of the Mexican Polymer Society and the Polymer Chemistry Division of the American Chemical Society. The symposium covered a wide range of subjects from fundamental aspects of polymer synthesis to the application of polymers for advanced technologies, including polymer processing and engineering.

Meet the Author

Krzysztof Matyjaszewski is J.C. Warner Professor of Natural Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, USA. He is also director of the Center for Macromolecular Engineering at CMU and adjunct Professor at the University of Pittsburgh and at the Polish Academy of Sciences. He is the editor of the journal "Progress in Polymer Science" and "Central European Journal of Chemistry". His research focus is on macromolecular engineering, especially on synthesis of well-defined copolymers using atom transfer radical polymerization and other controlled/living polymerization techniques. He is author of 10 books, over 60 book chapters, over 500 peer-reviewed publication and 30 US patents.
Rigoberto C. Advincula is currently Associate Professor at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Houston. He obtained his bachelor's degree from the University of the Philippines in 1987 and his PhD in Chemistry at the University of Florida seven years later.
He was Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in 1995 and the following year a Research Fellow at the Department of Chemical Engineering, Stanford University. In 2003, Dr. Advincula was one of the recipients of the Arthur K. Doolittle Award given by the Polymer Materials Science and Engineering division of the American Chemical Society. His current research interests are in the area of organic and polymer materials as applied to nanoscale building blocks and phenomena, with applications focusing on electro-optical properties, biofunctional systems, and surface modifiers.
