PMSE Sponsored Symposiums

Over 30 symposia are held annually across the two American Chemical Society national meetings, and PMSE works with polymeric research groups across the globe to foster international collaboration.

In 1924 at the 67th National American Chemical Society Meeting, the Paint and Varnish Section held their first symposium on paint and varnish chemistry. After 100 years of symposium across 200 national meetings, the members of the Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering Division recognize the century of accomplishments from those early beginnings.

At the 267th American Chemical Society meeting in New Orleans, LA, the Division plans to host multiple symposium and events celebrating the past success and future of polymer material science through chemistry. PMSE has a wide variety of programming for the 100th anniversary of PMSE, which are listed at the following page.

The PMSE / POLY Plenary and Award Presentation will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20th in the New Orleans Marriott, Grand Ballroom.

Please see the Future Programming page.
