Our friends from NTUA attend the Polymers 2022 - New Trends in Polymers Science: Health of the Planet, Health of the People conference

Our partners from NTUA attended this year's "Polymers 2022 - New Trends in Polymers Science: Health of the Planet, Health of the People" conference in Turin, Italy on May 25–27, 2022. The purpose of the meeting was to bring together scientists from academia and industry to present leading-edge research on the advancements in polymer science and technology in all its main aspects, with a particular emphasis on those aiming to preserve and improve the health of the planet and of people, as per title. The broad themes were addressed during the conference include synthesis, modification, and characterization of synthetic and natural polymers, polymers from green chemistry, polymer hybrids, nanocomposites, polymer biomaterials, polymers in drug delivery and tissue engineering, polymers for human health, bio-based and biodegradable polymers, polymer recycling and re-use, polymers for the environment, functional polymers, and polymers in energy, among others. Over 200 scientists took a part in this conference. Our partners presented part of their work with the poster titled "Enzymatic depolymerization against polymers structure and properties in the perspective of biochemical recycling". https://polymers2022.sciforum.net/
