SCM-8 is the premier meeting on the characterization of high-molecular-weight analytes covering topics from a wide range of specialties including analytical chemistry, materials and polymers, and the life sciences, offering a platform for scientists from diverging backgrounds and with different current perspectives to interact, to discuss subjects of mutual interest, and to discover new synergies. The latest developments in theory, methodology, technology, and instrumentation will be presented along with a strong focus on solving relevant industrial problems.
Our SCM-8 programme puts the important topics and methods at the foreground with particular focus on Polymer Characterization, Non-Soluble Materials Characterization/Analysis of Soluble Polymers, and Separation of Very-High-Molecular-Weight Polymers and Small Particles.
However, difficult problems cannot usually be addressed by a single technique and may even require novel approaches; exciting developments in mass spectrometric techniques for the characterization of macromolecules are set to be discussed including new instrumentation and applications. Likewise, developments in spectroscopic techniques, microscopy, and thermal analysis will be discussed and special detectors for macromolecules such as light scattering and viscometry are also on the agenda.
The M•E•A•T (Make, Encounter, Apply, Technology) of the SCM-8 conference consists of a number of important application areas.
For SCM-8 participants only, password will be provided at the conference location.
