About 25th Polychar
The name POLYCHAR is derived from polymer characterization but goes beyond the initial goal and now addresses the whole field of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE). The Short Course on Polymer Characterization, held usually on the first conference day, was established at the very beginning by the POLYCHAR founders: Witold Brostow, Michael Hess and Kevin P. Menard. The Course serves a tutorial for newcomers in the field of Polymer Science as well as up-date about recent developments in analysis and characterization of polymer systems provided by specialists in the field.
The conference provides an opportunity to present new concepts, new materials, new discoveries – enhancing research collaborations, networking and dissemination of recent advances in MSE.
Institut Kimia Malaysia, or IKM, is proud to host the 25th POLYCHAR in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 9th – 13th October. IKM has a very active and strong polymer section, and together with local universities and other polymer-related societies and institutions, we are pleased to bring this important international meeting on polymer science, technology, engineering and innovation to Malaysia. The conference will be held concurrently with a biennial laboratory equipment exhibition the LabAsia 2017 on 10th - 12th Oct 2017 at the PWTC Kuala Lumpur.
