11th International IUPAC Conference on Polymer-Solvent Complexes and Intercalates

Polymer-Solvent Complexes and Intercalates (POLYSOLVAT) is a biennial international symposium that discusses the structure, property and applications on polymer-solvent complexes and intercalates. All earlier editions of POLYSOLVAT, including maiden one at Meyrueis in France, were so far held in Europe and the works presented in the conference were regularly published in the Macromolecular Symposia journal. POLYSOLVAT focuses on the formation mechanisms, morphology, molecular structure, and the properties of compounds formed between solvent molecules and/or small molecules with synthetic polymers, biopolymers, proteins, as well as supramolecular polymers. For the first time, this IUPAC conference will be organized in India due to the overwhelming participation of Asian researchers in the above mentioned field.

IACS is the oldest scientific research institute in India devoted to practice basic science in physics, chemistry and biology. It was founded on 1876, much before independence came to the country, by a medical professional Dr. Mahendra Lal Sircar. This is the place where Professor C V Raman worked (1907 – 1933) for his pioneering discovery of Raman Effect for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1930. Prof. Meghnath Saha and Prof. S. N. Bose were also associated in different capacities with this premier institute of the country. The polymer research in India was first started at IACS in 1947 under the leadership of Prof. S. R. Palit. Since then, IACS is a vibrant place of polymer research in India.
