Sessions and Tracks
1: Polymer Physics
Polymer physics deals with the physical structure and also the properties of polymers, as well as the reaction kinetics of polymerization of monomers and degradation of polymers. Polymers are giant molecules and therefore are terribly sophisticated for resolution employing a settled methodology. In the state of liquid, polymer is strongly depends on the temperature. The thermal fluctuation affects the shape of a polymer when there is an external temperature is given to a liquid state of polymer. There are many applications of polymer physics with in the space of optoelectronics, coating, medicine, food and so on. The polymers can be made in a chain form. There are two types of polymer chain.
· Ideal chain model
· Real chain model
2: Biopolymers and Bio-Plastics
Bio-polymers are polymers produced by living organisms; in alternative words, they are compound biomolecules. Bio-polymers provide an alternative to oil based plastics, as they are made up off plants, usually polymers of starch or polylactic acid (PLA). They are presently used for luggage bags, cutlery and plates, pens, clothing, credit cards, food packaging, agricultural films, teabags, occasional filters, diapers and napkins. Bio-plastics are plastics derived from renewable biomass sources, like vegetable fats and oils, corn starch, straw, woodchips, food waste, etc. Bio-plastics are not free of environmental impact, and the carbon emissions related to growing crops and changing these into the specified chemicals has to be taken into consideration.
There are four main kinds of bio-polymer based respectively on:
· Synthetic materials
3: Synthetic and green Polymers
Synthetic polymers are human-made polymers. Synthetic polymers are derived from crude oil, and created by scientists and engineers. Examples of synthetic polymers include nylon, polythene, polyester, Teflon, and epoxy. Examples of naturally occurring polymers are silk, wool, DNA, polysaccharide and proteins. Green and Natural Polymers Are on the Rise. As their name implies, natural polymers (or biopolymers) are polymers that occur naturally or are produced by living organisms (such as polysaccharide, silk, chitin, protein, DNA).
4: 3D Printing Polymers
The powder will be chemical compound or many other alternative materials and a range of binders will be utilized based on the powder used. Fused filament fabrication (FFF) (or fused deposition modelling – FDM) was developed in the early 1990s as another 3D printing approach that like SLS uses preformed polymer as the building material. PLA is a biodegradable plastic made from renewables such as corn-starch. While several 3D-printer manufacturers are providing metal 3D-printing services, it’ll be some time before the economies of scale that helped bring down the price of plastic 3D printing affect the DMLS market.
3 Types of Plastic Used in 3D Printing-
· Polylactic Acid (PLA)
· Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS)
· Polyvinyl Alcohol Plastic (PVA)
5: Bio-Catalysis in Polymer Chemistry
Bio-catalysis refers to the use of natural substances that include enzymes from biological sources or whole cells to speed up chemical reactions. Enzymes have pivotal role in the catalysis of hundreds of reactions that include production of alcohols from fermentation and cheese by breakdown of milk proteins. Bio-catalysis have many advantages over chemo catalysis in the context of green chemistry, which include mild reaction conditions (physiological pH and temperature), the use of environmentally compatible catalysts (enzymes) and solvents (usually water), high chemical activity and sensible regio- and chemo-selectivities for multifunctional molecules.

A polymer that can be decomposed by microorganism is named as biodegradable polymer. The biodegradable polymers are the polymers which are degraded by the micro-organism within a suitable period so that biodegradable polymers & their degraded products do not cause any serious affects on the environment. The decomposition reactions involve hydrolysis to non- toxic small molecules which may be metabolized by or excreted from the body. Biological polymers are large molecules composed of the many similar smaller molecules coupled along in an exceedingly chain-like fashion. The individual smaller molecules are called monomers. When small organic molecules are joined together, they can form giant molecules or polymers Natural polymers are used to build tissue and other elements in living organisms.

Metal nanoparticles have been used since the medieval times to create beautiful colours in glass windows. The effect is a result of strong colour-dependent light absorption in metal nanostructures; through excitation of collective electron oscillations known as plasmons.They are associated with doped fiber amplifiers, which give light-weight amplification without lasing.Fiber nonlinearities, like stimulated Raman scattering or four-wave mixing can also provide gain and thus serve as gain media for a fiber optical device.

12: Polymers in Petroleum Refinery
The chemical gas polymerization process of the UOP operates on olefin-containing gases. In both thermal and catalytic polymerization processes, the feedstock is usually pretreated to remove sulfur and nitrogen compounds. This method converts propylene and butylene to high-octane fuel or petrochemical polymers. Polymerization may be a method in which a substance of low molecular weight is transformed into one of the same composition but of higher molecular weight, maintaining the atomic arrangement present in the basic molecule.The stability of petroleum is dependent upon the molecular relationships of asphaltene and organic compound constituents and also the balance with the other constituents of petroleum. The asphaltene constituents are the highest molecular weight heaviest and most polar compounds in crude oil. During crude purification, the asphaltene compounds are non-distillable and remain in the residual fuels as the distillable fractions are removed.
