The Center for Layered Polymeric Materials (CLiPS) Presents a
Technical Symposium on Frontiers in Polymer Science, February 28, 2014

Hosted by Bowie State University Natural Science Department
In Collaboration with the National Science Foundation funded Science and Technology Center CLiPS

Widely overlooked, yet indispensable in everyday materials, polymers and the field of polymer science and engineering significantly contribute to the quality of modern society. Polymers possess unique properties and process advantages unattainable in any other material. For this reason, advances in polymer science and engineering are critical to meeting the 21st century challenges of energy, sustainability, clean water, food preservation, healthcare, informatics, and defense and security concerns. Led by Case Western Reserve University, CLiPS uses a forced polymer assembly multilayer coextrusion technology to advance our understanding of fluid flows, gas transport, crystallization, while also improving electric and information storage, and reverse osmosis filters, among many others.

The Frontiers in Polymer Science Technical Symposium is a way for students, staff, and faculty to learn more about NSF-funded polymer research. The event will be held February 28, 2014, 9:00 am – 3:15 pm., on the campus of Bowie State University at the Student Center Ball Room A. 

Program Highlights Include:

  1. An Introduction to CLiPS’ Enabling Technology: Forced Assembly Polymer Coextrusion
  2. High Dielectric (K) Polymers for Electric Energy Storage
  3. CLiPS Education Programs, including K-12 Outreach, Undergraduate, and Graduate Programs
  4. Forced Assembly versus Self Assembly Polymer Systems
  5. Development of Advanced Polymeric Materials with Tailored Gas Transport
  6. Desalination Reverse Osmosis Membranes from Multilayered Polymer Systems

We invite you to join us in this all day celebration of Polymers.
