Symposium on Chemistry & Physics of Macromolecules

  November 20th 2015
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Campus Adlershof
Erwin Schrödinger-Zentrum, Raum 0'119, Rudower Chaussee 26, 12489 Berlin

Macromolecules, the dominating source in nature, play also a crucial role in a wide variety of industries. Natural Sciences are the key to analyse and understand their complex properties, which are unachievable by other materials, and design more and more specialised molecules and systems for further applications. The symposium is intended to feature a few but fine selected presentations on cutting-edge research on the physics and chemistry of functional (macro-)molecules.
