Advancing Macromolecular Materials

Who We Are

The Division of Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering, a division of the American Chemical Society, was founded in 1924 as an association of scientists with an interest in understanding how to improve and understand paints and other polymeric coatings. The complex interactions and optimization between the polymeric material, solvents, substrates, and end use required a collaborative effort to understand fundamental property interactions. PMSE build and maintain relationships, arrange polymeric programs at professional meetings, and promotes the teaching of macromolecular chemistry at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
