Safer medical implants, more comfortable fabrics among research items at Rochester meeting

ALL PAPERS ARE EMBARGOED FOR RELEASE UNTIL DATE AND TIME OF PRESENTATION

A symposium on research that could lead to safer medical implants and a look at how coating technology has made fabrics more comfortable are on tap for the 32nd Northeast Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Rochester, N.Y., Oct.31-Nov. 3. About 400 papers will be presented and more than 850 scientists are expected to attend the meeting at the Hyatt Regency Hotel & Riverside Center. Some of the highlights of the meeting are:

Coating technologies promise safer medical implants Advances in coatings can mean safer medical implants that are less likely to be rejected or cause infection, and even longer-lasting, environmentally friendly surfaces for ships, among other applications. A three-day symposium, Surface Modification for Coating & Dispersion Technology, will address many topics related to coating technologies, including nanowire arrays, nanocomposites, stimuli-responsive polymeric coatings and more. (Monday, Nov. 1, 8:30 a.m. 5 p.m.; Tuesday, Nov. 2, 8:30 a.m. 5 p.m.; and Wednesday, Nov. 3, 8:30 a.m.11:30 a.m., Grand Ballroom F)

The chemistry of comfort Many things we use in our daily lives are designed with our comfort level in mind. And most of what provides comfort is of a chemical nature. This presentation will highlight breathable and thermal coatings, all of which respond to body temperature. The presentation also will include comments about protective coatings, such as flame-retardant and water-repellant coatings. (Monday, Nov. 1, 9:15 a.m., Regency Ballroom A)

Chemical advances mean brighter, more flexible future for electronics Lightweight, flexible electronic displays, improved chemical sensors and brighter LEDs are just a few of the technologies being developed through advances in chemistry. A two- day symposium, Optoelectronics, Organic LED and Disp
