Symposium L02: Ion-Conducting Polymeric (or, Polymer-based) Materials
Symposium Focus is on polymeric ion-conducting materials. They are supramolecular systems which comprise/are doped with ions and present a significant conductivity. Polymeric ion-conducting materials are found at the heart of a number of advanced applications, ranging from electrochemical energy conversion and storage systems (e.g., lithium batteries, low-temperature fuel cells, supercapacitors) to sensors, actuators, photo-electrochemical devices, not to mention the fields of microelectronics and biotechnology. This Symposium will place a particular emphasis on all the fundamental and applied aspects of the science and technology of polymeric ion-conducting materials, covering experimental and theoretical studies on their structure, properties, interactions and mechanisms of charge migration.
